PICTURES FROM BENNIE'S COLLECTION
Bennie first got in touch with me to offer the very early picture of Braystones Station which appears on the Miscellany page. Subsequently, he found the following interesting selection of photos more closely related to his own family's experiences on the beach.
The Bennett family bungalow is Sunnymede, one of the southernmost- here they are in 1970.
And here they are out on the beach, with The Cabin in the background, a few years before its dramatic demise.
That was before; here's after- the aftermath of the 1977 rail crash. This is actually two photos (by Bennie's aunt, who was staying in Sunnymede at the time) joined together, in the vicinity of the yellow-trousered fireman's right leg.
Here are two more photos joined together, taken a day after the accident; the little girls are both the same person, Bennie's young cousin.
And somewhat later still, here's work in progress on the new stronger bridge through to the Lantern Moss caravan site.
