Memories of tourism in the 1930's
I recently came across a part of a website, that gave a very personal insight into tourism in Skegness during the 1930's.
It somehow seemed a lot more fun than it is nowadays !
Go to www.skegness-resort.co.uk. then click on History and memories 1930-1939
With Skegness being only a couple of hours drive away from home, I've been there countless times.
The last trip was last March where we spent a long weekend at Butlin's (they had a soul weekend on!)
Skegness is a real British sea-side resort for me, lots of fish and chip shops, jellied eels on sale (no, I haven't been tempted...!), donkeys ferrying small children to the sea and back (has anyone else noticed how many donkies are called Susan?...), amusement arcades, donuts, noisy pubs, shops full of souvenirs.....
Ahh, the memories!! It's a fantastic day out, it's a bit of pot luck if the sun shines or not, but it's really good in the Autumn when dogs are allowed on the beach (watching them run and have fun is fab!!) and the wind clears out any cobwebs in your head!!
I can't wait for my next visit!
