Shore Road in the 1930s

This photo dates from around the 1930s and shows Shore road and the beach on the left and Sandpit field and the recreation ground on the right, with a café and tea room in the foreground.

There is a day trip boat loading on the floating walkway next to the Mowlem and behind this you can see the building called Playland which is still open today and is an arcade.
