Smile! You're In Southend

Happy people, many of whom are now dead, in Anthony Simmons' 1953 short 'Sunday By The Sea', filmed in Southend, or Sarfend as we Essex folk would have it.

I went to Southend last year. It's a bit too far west for me in many ways, so I didn't enjoy it half as much as the people in the pictures above. My twin and I did pose around in our trunks though, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.
