This poster of Clacton is wonderful piece of 1950’s advertising. British Railways had this poster depict a wonderful beach scene with a perfect couple with their perfect children; a boy and a girl and of course Granny is being aired for the day/week. She might be useful!!!!!
Clacton-on-sea is not really showed on this poster, an ancient town going back to 100 BC! There are traces that the romans used Clacton as a seaside resort, so nothing new. Modern day Clacton was founded in 1871, a pier was built. Its recent heyday was from the 1950’s to the 1970’s
