Ivy Watson 1946
donated by Jayne Shrimpton on September 27, 2011
This lovely picture has been sent in by Jayne Shrimpton from Brighton, and shows her mother Ivy Watson aged 15 proudly showing off her bellyboard outside a row of beach huts in 1946. It is thought the photo was taken on the south coast, possibly at Selsey – if you can help identify the location please get in touch.
Jayne provides a fantastic photo dating & analysis service and has helped the Museum of British Surfing with its research into archive photographs.
