Donkey rides

While this site is about the walking picture images, many other types of portrait were available to the day-trippers at the coast in the 1920s and 1930s. Having your child photographed atop a donkey was more popular than you might imagine, and I have a gallery of half a dozen of these images on the easy on the eye site if you want to read a bit more. The photograph here was taken on Blackpool Pleasure Beach on September 20th 1928. I don’t know who the little girl is.

    Thank you for sending me your email. I have some snaps taken in Margate around 1946 from sunbeam, also a few in St. Leonards on sea nr. Hastings. I will find them and email them to you. I do have a connection with Sunbean as John Milton Worsell was my Uncle. Look forward to hearing from you, regards.
