Walkies

Walkies

During the holiday season, commercial seaside photographers would work the coast,  making and selling thousands of postcard-sized images of promenading holidaymakers and beachgoers. These modest photographs, commonly named ‘Walkies’, were an important means of recording trips to the seaside, particularly in an era when many families did not have their own camera.
