Chapel St Leonards, The Esplanade c.1955

More about this scene


Caption for Chapel St Leonards, The Esplanade C1955: This is the village centre, and it holds very special memories for the author. It is more than likely that among the people either getting off or getting on the green Lincolnshire double decker 'bus is the author with his mother and sister ! We had family holidays each year at Chapel St Leonards, and in the days before cars were affordable we went by train to Skegness and onwards by 'bus to the caravan. Cannings (left) are first mentioned in 1930, when a Miss Canning had a haberdashery store; Stow's Stores (right) is still in the same place.
