Boys, beaches and a back view are my theme to match this week's prompt, with a sideline of hats.
This is the only sailor suit image I have, taken from the the large collection left by my Great Aunt Jennie (Danson), who grew up in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire. She had written names on the back of many of the photographs which I suspect were of friends and children of friends. I was unable to make little headway in further identification.
Below - at the seaside of sorts! Another photograph from Aunt Jennie's collection, Jesse and Bernard Pennington, looking very serious in this studio shot against the background of a choppy sea.

My brother c.1950 in his natty knitted bathing suit and what could be my sun hat!
Back to the 1920's and some beach scenes of my husband's Great Aunt Pat's family and friends - in all seasons.
Pat was born in South Shields in 1896, the daughter of George and Sarah Hibbert. George was a miner, born in Derbyshire who then moved to the Yorkshire coalfields and then onto South Shields.

And finally - the only back view I could find - my daughter and I looking across to Scott's View in the Scottish Borders c.1976 . I am amazed at the fact I am wearing a dress and court shoes for such an outing, as I don't think we were going anywhere special. How fashions have changed! Now it would be trousers and a fleece.
