HOLIDAY CAMPS 1930s ONWARDS


HOLIDAY CAMPS, originally uploaded by Vintage Vision.

For those who could afford a week's holiday the seaside beckoned, and holiday camps dotted the coast - about 100 by the end of the decade. Billy Butlin opened a holiday camp in Skegness in 1936 and Clacton-on-Sea in 1938. Each chalet had its own electricity and cold running water and entertainment was provided whatever the weather.
