This photograph of the beach was taken in 1948, with Britannia Pier in the background. Notice the clothing that people are wearing. The men are wearing, shirts, waistcoats and suits to visit the beach. The deck chairs have the initials of Great Yarmouth Council on them, suggesting that they could be hired for the day from the council. One of the boats on the beach seems to be taking passengers out on a trip.
