At the seaside in 1906

In the light of what was to come later this 1906 seaside picture postcard seems very tame.  

Sadly neither of the two in the collection has a message on the back which given the subject matter would have been interesting.

So for now we shall just have to be content with L.Thackery’s painting and an acknowledgement that this was about as far as the publisher Tuck & Sons were prepared to go.
