General historical interest

Brighton beach in 1920. Notice the ladies in the background going for a gentle dip in the sea. Also the distinct lack of the shingle that is the beach today.

The picture dates from 1920 and is an example of how before colour photographs were achieved before colour film became available. The photograph is fairly high key B&W and then hand tinted.

Early colonial history

This photograph dates from 1916 and shows the means of personal transport for ladies in Kenya at the time.

Really lucky to get this result as the original print is really grim.
