Beside the Seaside beside the sea:

Before foreign travel became more affordable, the majority took their holidays in the UK.

Now because of Covid, their popularity has seen a huge resurgence. Therefore, step back in time and remember traditional British Holidays from the 50s and 60s.

Eric was a student then, who spent his summers employed in resorts around the British Isles, variously as a cabaret drummer, a redcoat, a photographer and a horse tram conductor and driver.

So, sit back and enjoy his illustrated, light-hearted, humorous recollections of Beside the Seaside beside the sea.
