Blackpool (from North Pier), England, 1890's

I love this image. Normally we see only very close images of people in front of a Punch and Judy show or people standing on the sand. Here we can see that they actually went on long walks, breathing the fresh air and admiring the sea views.

You're right Helen, unusually it shows the scale of things. Things have changed though - no kiss me quick hats. My parents went on Honeymoon in Blackpool, early 50's, and danced in the ballroom.
