Real Photo Postcard
‘Beside the Seaside’

Date: Unknown
People pictured: Unknown
Postcard Back: blank/unused

Notes: I really do find seaside images quite delightful. The fashion gives us a fabulous glimpse into the past, and the people pictured usually look like they’re laughing and joking around! Just look at these couples…they look like they’re having a great old time! Visually I also like the figure wading in up to their waist in the background. Off to trace the exact dates by tracing the swimwear fashion….the back of the card is unfortunately blank.
