Waterloo walkie

This walkie [WP868] would be a hard one to locate but for two reasons; first I recognise it as Waterloo Road in Blackpool, having helped identify some walkies taken there in the past. And the lady in the centre has written “Blackpool June 1950” on the back in biro!

It pre-dates the other Waterloo Road walkies (which you can see on the site here) by only a year or two, but were taken on a different camera.
Which just leaves us with one last puzzle, who is in the family group? I assume the lady on the far left is just caught up in the picture but perhaps the lad on the right (with his beach spade) is related.
They may be locals, it’s hard to imagine they would have travelled far with the tricycle which the little girl is understandably distracted by.

    I love this!
    I’m so glad I’ve re-found your blog. I remembered it from some while back and then my pc crashed and I lost my bookmarks. I can’t remember now when you posted it, but you beat me to it on one of your photos that I was going to buy from Ebay… two girls on a pier. That made me sit up and take more notice of your blog! 🙂

      Thanks Val, sorry if I did you out of an ebay purchase! I try and be very selective as to what I go for, and very budget conscious too otherwise it could get expensive!

        My fault for dawdling! (And yep, it can be expensive without a budget.)
