This Could Well Have Been Bournemouth.

 

This week's Sepia Saturday theme image shows a bit of a crowd at a football match. My best match is a bit of a crowd at the seaside - and amongst that crowd are my Auntie Annie and Uncle Harry.

I am not sure which seaside this photograph from the 1930s was taken at. If it was any other member of my family I would say Bridlington, Scarborough , Blackpool, or - if they were being adventurous - Skegness.

Harry had flirted with the performing arts, settled to become a clerical worker, and together with Annie, bought the first semi-detached house the family had ever seen and spent their money on leather settees and decorative ornaments. This could well have been Bournemouth. Enough said!
