A side-by-side comparison of Lower Largo Beach in the very early 20th century (above) and about a century later in 2014. Similarities between the two images include the curve of the sands, boats resting above the waterline, people enjoying a sunny day and the Crusoe Hotel at the tail end of the string of buildings. In fact, most of the buildings and sea walls are largely unchanged. However, Largo St David's Church lost its bell tower c1960s, the Largo Bay Sailing Club was built c1960 adjacent to the large gable end in the centre of the upper photograph, and a few houses have had extensions or summer houses added. The 'zoomed-in' detail below illustrates another difference - the attire that people wear to the beach. Long gone are the ankle-length skirts, long-sleeved blouses and fancy hats!
