Weston S Mare Donkeys - a Memory of Weston-super-Mare.

Iam Weston born and bred from the age of 8 to15 I worked-with the Drew family on the beach with the donkeys and carriages from 1963-1970 I must have had my photo taken hundreds of times yet can't find any anyway of that time our stand was by the first aid post I would love to know if any one out there has any photos of that time I drove a train called the 6-5 special which later became the Apollo space craft or the wirrley bird helecopter there was always lots of Welsh visitor that came by steamer or the Birmingham visitors that came by train so if there is anyone out there with any photos I would love to see them it would bring back so many happy times I had as a young boy I am 60 years old now but it was just like yesterday Chris Hewlett

I am trying to find photos showing the entrance to Marine Lake beach that went through an archway. I can remember there were some animals perhaps a parrot or two in the 1960 s and also some posh toilets. Can't find anyone else who can remember any of this but I am sure it's correct. As you are from Weston I hope you can help me please.
