Bliss! - a Memory of Leysdown-on-Sea.

My Aunt Maggie lived at 1 Easton Road (Halfway down the High Street towards the beach, turn left at the newsagent into Easton Road). Sadly, it appears the road is no longer there according to maps. Surely the road featured in the photograph is called The Promenade?
I was born there in 1945, and mum and I spent our summer holidays at Aunt Maggie's bungalow. I have so many fond memories of Leysdown before it became commercialised. My last visit there was in 1959, and I haven't been back. The photo is just as I remember, especially the motorbike and sidecar.
