Yesterday I was reading through Alan Dowling's book on the Fitties doing some reseach for my new book, Houses in the Dunes. I came across this photograph. Now I know that my chalet was called Homefield originally, this image brought a bit of a lump to my throat. This is the Grantham family, from Grimsby, on the veranda, when the chalet was newly built in the 1930s. The veranda is gone now, it's been turned into a dining area and the bunk room. But how nice to see people from nearly 100 years ago doing what families still do today on holiday!
