Bill Phillips: The whole thing Ginnie. There are shops full of stuff you only see to sea at the seaside and wonder why anyone would buy most of it..but we all do!

The top card is dedicated to A. Rolfe & his teashop fetish. The second to R. Trim and all his vices, at least the ones we know about..

I can just imagine Raymond Blanc rushing down to Sidmouth to buy the "Fish and chips" place mats for his Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons resturant. Nothing better at the seaside than fish and chips followed by tea and cakes.
Bill Phillips: Indeed. We had the pensioners special in Beer. Fish and chips and a big pot of tea and it was excellent

Is that so Bill, I shall have to take your word for that.

You also find them in corners of rooms inland.
Bill Phillips: Well hidden I hope
Thank goodness for that.

Back to the 50's....great shot.
Bill Phillips: A lot of seaside stuff seems to be unchanged from the fifties Bonnie....well apart from the prices that is!
Pro9bably just as well, Bill.
Bill Phillips: A time and a place eh Tom?
to me, for some reason it conveys a sense of unfettered consumerism, Bill. great observation
Bill Phillips: There is plenty of that in seaside towns Ayush
Yes, all part of the seaside atmosphere Bill. LOl at Chris
Bill Phillips: My namesake (NO relation) is a very silly man grin
