Pictured here is a beach scene taken in the early part of the 20th century, showing a gathering of men, engrossed in something which appears to have attracted their full attention. Shown too is a peddler and his makeshift stall stationed outside a wooden fence under the shade of tall trees. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
