Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I live about 30 miles from Skegness. Along with Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes a holiday destination for me and my cousins in the late 1950's. All three places have seen better days. Skeggy was by all accounts, where the first Butlins holiday camp was built. My Grand Father was a labourer for the company that laid all of the roadworks. After which he was employed as a pre-curser to the Red Coats and worked on some of the fairground rides.
I once read in Film Photoplay magazine, sometime in the 1970s, that this poster was designed by actress Imogen Hassel's grandfather. Great blog, I love it. Thanks.
