Ballooning CVS01_01_042

Tales of balloon flight. Hand-coloured engraving of two men in a balloon flying over London. This engraving is by William Lionel Wyllie, who made sketches over London from a balloon c.1880-1884 - this one appeared in ?The Graphic' magazine on September 11th 1880. It shows one of the balloons participating in the International Contest between England and France in 1880 that flew from Crystal Palace to Hayling Island. The contest was one of ?a serious of simultaneous ascents with the view of endeavouring to ascertain the various currents of air at different heights, as well as other collateral matters of interest.? From the Cecil Victor Shadbolt collection of lantern slides dating from 1882-1892

Holiday Home at Shoreham AL2397_012_01 Featured 2015 Print

Holiday Home at Shoreham AL2397_012_01

Converted railway carriage holiday home, possibly at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. Silver gelatin DOP (developing out paper) print by an unknown photographer, 1920s. Holidaymakers pose on the verandah of their converted railway carriage holiday home. Between the wars, the freedom offered by the motor car and ambiguous planning regulations stimulated the creation of plotland developments in remote or undeveloped stretches of coastline and countryside. Shoreham Beach in West Sussex was one such development, and these photographs may have been taken there. Railway carriages, cheap to build shacks and bungalows were built or converted to be both holiday homes and more permanent dwellings. Plotland developments principally catered for the urban working class, but they also attracted artistic and bohemian folk, eager to find places free from conventional restrictions where open skies and dramatic changes in the weather could stimulate artistic creativity
