Are You Here?

I recreated this walking photo rack recently to try and get a feel for what it must have looked like for someone passing the kiosk back in the Thirties. I’ve got a lot of walkies from the same spot in Mablethorpe (discussed on the site) and figured they would look great in this old wooden postcard rack which I rescued a few years ago from the Snaps building in Bridlington. Firms also has large glass fronted display cabinets on the promenade or in other prominent places to attract tourists, though I doubt any of these have survived. I did think at first that the rack might have been made locally for the shop but it is quite an intricate construction so perhaps they were produced by specialist shop-fitting firms.
