These are some of my favourite beach photos of my (paternal) grandparents, Win and Harold.
The first is probably around the time of their engagement in the early 1920's - on a pier or seafront.
the second, Brighton I'm pretty sure, with the old pier (now gone, derelict and then burned down) in the background - possibly where the first photo was taken. Though I think my grandfather here looks rather older than in the first.
Note his rather short trousers. I've read that a few inches of bare ankles is a current male trend. I'm not convinced, but Harold looks quite dashing.
I'd date this one some time in the (early?) 1950's or poss. mid-late 1940's.
And this last photo is in their retirement, in Bognor Regis on the coast.
There is an earlier post here about Winnifred, my gran
and here about Harold, grandad.
Happy Sepia Saturday!
