  1. Such a funny photo…They do look dressed for British seaside weather though.

    I’m going on vacation soon – but I’m sure it won’t be this fun. I’ll remember to bring my bowler hat, though.

    What a great photo. Is that a new Instagram filter? What app did you use to take that?! 🙂

    Ha, seriously though, I love seeing old photographs like this. I feel as though I could stare at them for hours like I’m going to find something new somehow.

    • I know, right? I love looking at the photos to find out the things they have in common with my own photos. Makes history a bit more relatable when you realize that people act similarly in all time periods! 🙂
