EDITORS COMMENTS
The old and the new. . . a timeless holiday tradition. In this photo print, we see retired miner John James at the age of 63, from Cwmbran, South Wales, relishing in the simple pleasures of life. Taken on a sunny day at Trecco Bay in Porthcawl on July 28th, 1980, this image beautifully captures the essence of family fun and outdoor leisure activities. With his rolled-up trousers and vestments reminiscent of a bygone era, John James stands out against the backdrop of sandy beaches and glistening waves. A cap adorns his head as he takes a moment to enjoy his pipe while watching children play nearby. The contrast between his rugged appearance and the carefree innocence of youth creates an intriguing juxtaposition that speaks volumes about the passage of time. This photograph is not just about one man's enjoyment; it represents generations coming together to create cherished memories by the sea. It reminds us that amidst technological advancements and societal changes, there are enduring traditions that connect us to our roots. Preserved by Western Mail Archive's Memory Lane Prints collection, this image serves as a nostalgic reminder of simpler times when families flocked to seaside destinations for their holidays. It encapsulates both history and humanity in one frame—a testament to how photographs can transport us back in time.
