Taking a break
A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.
John B. Priestly
The good weather has come early and bright sunshine bathes the city in a warm glow. Everywhere thoughts are turning to the Easter Break. So just before I enjoy a well deserved holiday I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the way holidays in the UK were advertised in the past.
Enticing the great british public to the ‘joyful’ pleasures of a week or so away in one of our UK tourist hot spots has had something of a renaissance in recent years with television ads for Scotland, Wales and various locations in the UK, most recently Yorkshire. But back in the 50s and 60s the ads may have been less sophisticated but they have an appeal all of their own.
No posts recently… I’ve just returned from a short break in the Lake District and took this picture of Lake Windermere from Borran’s Park on a beautiful sunny day. The weather was very kind for this time of the year in the Lakes. I shot this image with my trusty old Canon G5 for those who may be interested.
