Memories of Lowestoft
Great grandparents lived here in 1890
I went on holiday there when I was only 2. I still have photos somewhere.
Not exact on the dates but went to Lowestoft from Norwich on the steam train for our annual day out by the seaside. We saw the Punch & Judy, watched the men fish off the quay and went to the Kensington gardens (?) for a ride on the motor boats. There was then a long walk at the time to get back to the station after a lovely day out.
Our paternal grandfather loved to take us on the boating lake. I suppose it wasn't operational during WW2, so most of the memories will be of the 1950s. Perhaps, he used us as an excuse to go boating himself? The other photo of 2 young girls in 1955 could be my two younger sisters, though the older thinks she wasn't allowed to drive the boats herself.
