British Beaches 1920s

Do you have a favourite beach? I have some lovely photographs of various members of the Dinnis family on holiday at different British beaches over the years. The first one is one I posted recently of my grand-aunt Cora Annie Amelia Dinnis. It was taken on Blackpool beach, and it looks really crowded! I hope she found room to build a sandcastle.

The next photo is my grand-uncle John Albert Harold Walter Dinnis and his wife Florence Violet Heard. There is nothing written on this one, so I don’t know where it was or what the date is. They got married in 1918, so I imagine it’s around that time.

Here is my grand-aunt Rose Cleeve and her husband Wilf Davis on Bournemouth beach in 1925. I’m guessing it was quite chilly for July as they don’t look dressed for a day on the beach!
