This post-war view of the pier at Lower Largo is particularly interesting because of the range of people included in the shot. The youngsters are dressed for summer in shorts, while some of the adults are wrapped up in hats and long coats! Ice creams are being enjoyed, fishing rods are in use and several boats look ready for action. There are plenty of people milling about in the background too. It's all indicative of this being a popular destination for holidaymakers and day trippers at the time. Adverts in the Courier for the Crusoe Hotel from this era talk of its "ideal situation on the sands and quay", the pleasant county walks and the proximity to tennis, boating, golf and riding stables. A warm day in July this year wasn't so very different with holidaymakers and fishing rods once again in evidence!
