When life was tougher, and enjoyment was on a simple level, it can still amaze us how dressed up and covered in their then current fashions, the average person was.
It was a joy to visit the beach, partake in games, usually supported by nearly all the local people.
They were fun times!
1930s Inverloch. Beach Rd, now The Esplanade. Baths Coastal RetreatThe bathing fence was a splendid diving & jumping off ‘board’.
Notice the safety bathing fence seen in several photos. Again note the costumes & daily clothing.
All this fun at the beach prior to World War 1. Little did they know what was coming!
In the late twenties & early thirties. Again, notice the costumes. A little more showing!
