“Having a Ripping Time at Folkestone”

“Having a Ripping Time at Folkestone” is the sort of a line you could expect in a parody of the early 20th century. It would not be out of place in any of a number of shows, and films lampooning the period.

But here it is complete with a young couple gazing out at the pier and all it had to offer.
