Hol­i­day mem­o­ries

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WRITE IN -

I loved the ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing beach pho­to­graphs in your Sum­mer is­sue, but it’s not just about when, it’s also about where.

My dad is 92, and tells us about his hol­i­days as a young­ster. Spent in a con­verted rail­way car­riage owned by his older brother. Based in a field on the “front”. Walks and pad­dling dur­ing the day, evenings hav­ing fun with his fam­ily on the site. The swim­ming pool pro­vid­ing much fun, with bathing beauty com­pe­ti­tions etc.

And all of this hap­pened at sunny old Sev­ern Beach. The most unlikely venue for a two-week fam­ily hol­i­day now, but very pop­u­lar in its day. Kim Tozer, by email

Ed­i­tor replies: Thanks Kim. We are based in Bris­tol, so we know how un­promis­ing Sev­ern Beach would be as a hol­i­day desti­na­tion now!
