Family group on holiday

Marjorie, Ernest, Barbara and David Hepworth, c1953, probably at Bispham. This was the slightly more salubrious suburb that was a little bit along the prom from Blackpool. 1953 was the year of Queen Elizabeth's Coronation, which was a huge event, not least because it came after years of war and shortages. That probably accounts for the Union flag.
