The family at Skeggy

Wrates walking picture. Brian Froggatt and family on Holiday, Skegness, 1948.

This good ensemble walkie is clearly from Skegness (the town name was printed into the postcard at the developing stage) and was loaned to me by Brian Froggatt who is the young lad on the left. It includes lots of his family from left to right; Joyce Green (his Aunt), Lily (his mother), Alice and Mary Green. The little girl is Vivienne Frogatt . They were all on the Grand Parade in 1948 on holiday from Sheffield. It’s a very typical Wrates walkie and they would start adding their name to the front of the card not long after this.

The history of the firm is on the site here and there are more Wrates images on the site if you use the search button down on the right hand column.
