A lovely old photo this week of a packed promenade!
Plenty of people on the beach and plenty of cars parked on North Parade too. I’ve no idea of the date of this photo (what do you reckon?) but it would appear that the prom is one-way (all the cars facing same way). And it must have been before double yellow lines restricted parking to just the beach side of the road.
Spot the chap doing a spot of gardening and the deck-chair a couple of houses up from him. There’s a few bikes leaning against the promenade railings and what look like motorbike and sidecars parked up. I wonder what the sand was like back then? Nowadays it can be a bit soft and muddy when you walk a few metres out from the railings.
Anyway, tomorrow morning I’ll be running along the prom again. The forecast is for light winds tomorrow …much nicer than running into a howling gale! You can sponsor me if you’d be so kind 🙂
