At the sea in the 1890s

An der See in den 1890ern

A Family enjoying the sea about the late 1890s
All information we have about this family comes from the photos only. There are no inscriptions. Apparantly there were mother, father, and 5 children, 2 boys and 3 girls. It looks like the younger boy was disabled as he is pushed in a rickshaw-like vehicle while all other children are running about. In some photos the girls wear some kind of huge bathing trunks to protect their skirts. We have seen this kind of trunks in several pictures. There were at least two more women with the family, maybe aunts or a nanny.
The photos were taken by a photographer from Sleaford, a town within the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. This is not a seaside resort but it might well be that the photographer used the summer months to travel to seaside resorts to take photos of tourists which promised a good income.

Eine Famile an der See ca. in den späten 1890ern

The little girls are holding hands with father. The older two children are exploring on their own. The girls are wearing huge protective trunks to keep their skirts safe.


Here the girls have not yet put on their protective bathing trunks. The children are playing in the sand with bucket and shovel.


Here the little brother has joined them sitting in a rickshaw-like push chair. He also has a shovel with an extra long handle.
