A 1920's Charabanc Trip: Travel Tuesday


I know next to nothing about this photograph.  It was in the  collection of my Great Aunt Jennie of Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, and judging by the style of dress |(especially the little girl standing up), it  must have been taken in the 1920's.  There was no inscription on the reverse, but the photographer/publisher was identified as Arthur Hadley, Photographer, Ramsey, Isle of Man.   This could be a clue, as one of Jennie's many brothers. Albert,  worked on the  Isle of Man ferry between Fleetwood,  Lancashire and the Isle of Man.   

I like it as a happy holiday photograph,  though I wonder how safe I would find the vehicle with so many people on it.    I could imagine someone might need to get out and push,  if going up hills! 


Travel Tuesday is one of many blog prompts from www.geneabloggers.com to encourage writers to record their family and local history.  This photograph first appeared under the tag of Wordless Wednesday

  1. Could it be a "works outing" from a local factory, perhaps?
