Third digit of year uncertain, maybe 1st August 1946. Looking down Porthmeor Road towards the cottages on Porthmeor beach. A similar shot now (2021) shows the sloping ramp bottom left still there (with a guard rail) both sets of stairs shown still exist but with guard rails and the house with bay windows, last on the left still appears to exist. The housing facing us looks to have possibly been rebuilt or heavily renovated.
"To Mrs A M Williams, 185 Wolverhampton Road, Sedgley, Staffs.
Dear Mother, This is typical of the streets down here. We are having bright intervals of sunshine. Today we are off to Lands End. Managed to get a seat on the train but most of them were reserved. I have reserved for one back. Love Arthur & Eileen?"
