This is a  postcard of the sandy beach, as a family in the eighties we spent many happy times there in the school holidays. Opposite the beach you could buy ice creams, tea and sandwiches and the children would ride on the motorised type bikes. The beach was always packed and on a good day you would have to leave early if you wanted to set up your towel near the wall.

I would have thought that the picture was more like the 1950's, looking at the dress style and the cars.
