This is a nice trio of walking pictures which show us a family group’s late morning trip on Skegness pier. It looks to me like two brothers with their respective wives and a daughter, but from the numbering we see one of the wives and her father were snapped walking together with a paper parasol first. Seven photographs later the quintet are sat on the iron pier bench for a static portrait, before a more typical walking picture three pictures later. One wonders if the missing frames were given over to other shots of the same group or the cameraman just snapped different people in between. But it does show us that while these sort of photographs were often spontaneous, people were not above making use of the photographer as well. The firm are not indicated on the back and it is difficult to be sure who might be responsible, though Skeg Cards had a license to snaps people on the pier for some years and are a likely candidate. The cards look to date from the early 1930s and are in lovely condition, so someone has looked after them for 70 years or so.
There are two more walking pictures from the same spot on Skegness pier on the site.
