In the 60's long before the advent of Easy jet, Ryan Air and cheap package holidays to the Costas, the folk of East London put on their Sunday best and let their hair down after a week's hard work in the Ford Plant at Dagenham or labouring in the London Docks by heading for the nearest sea side resort.
Southend on Sea.
Having just bought a new Nikon camera with several fast lenses and anxious to try it out with a 400ASA black and white film ,Kodak TriX, it was into my car and an hour's drive to the lights of the Essex resort.
I was happy with the results but did nothing much with them except an enlargement of two. The negatives and contacts disappeared into my badly organized archives where they remained for over forty years.
A few years ago my son Sean mentioned that I had "history" in my filing cabinets which prompted me to scan several pages of negatives . The digital era had arrived and so had self publishing with Blurb.com leading the way.
Here is the result . It took nearly fifty years . Enjoy!!!
