JULIA FREAK

Post by yorkieman » Mon Jul 26, 2010 9:53 am

Here's one for the research experts, a wonderful crew on the JULIA FREAK presumably not on the Thames in 1925 ... could be a seaside spot like Margate?

The dog is called Patch ...

Walked past there yesterday.

It's Southend, E of the pier, though somewhat changed now - the beach was extended seawards so the tide no longer laps that curved ballustrade and the buildings in Marine parade have changed. The (few) beach boats still use the same area.

See bottom right on
