"My Dad took this photo in
1957 or 1958. I've never seen a photo with the beach so crowded, and
not an inch on the Promenade either. The family with the pram also
brought along their ghetto blaster of the day."
"The Portobello Pottery kilns are
in background. It looks as if the photo would have been taken from the
bottom of Kings Road on a day when we had also been to the Swimming pool."
"I think the photo of the beach
would probably have been taken on a Sunday, as tI have a pic taken at the
pool with my mum in it dressed in her 'Sunday Best'.
"My dad was quite a keen
photographer. This photo was taken on Agfa transparency film on his
Agfa Karat 4 35mm camera."
