Lyme Regis, August 1936
Hundreds of holidaymakers are enjoying the shingle beach at Lyme Regis. The beach is lined full of huts. In the distance a stretch of coastline known as the Spittle can be seen. It is part of the Jurassic Coast and rich in fossils. The famous fossil hunter, Mary Anning, found an ichthyosaur in the Spittles in the early 1800s.

View of Barry Island beach, Glamorgan, south Wales, summer 1938. The beach is very, very busy with holidaymakers enjoying the sunshine and lounging in deckchairs. Pony rides are taking place on the sands and the paddling pool in the distance is filled with people. Gwalia Tea Rooms and Dinkie Cafe can be seen to be doing a roaring trade!
