Image of the Month Feature - July/August 2009


SWiB Reference, RW-7-5

Photograph, Tinside Lido, Plymouth Hoe, 1960s

This month's image has been chosen from our Roy Westlake Collection by Jon Blyth, friend of SWiB and Co-Director of FOTONOW.

"Love your Lido, Love your culture, Love your heritage, Love your life??

Regular takers to the water… those who love to splash and splosh and swim, in oceans, Lido's, salt water and tidal pools, year round swimmers taking a cold dip, community bathers making a chatter, or those around the edges who seek the sun, relaxation, friendship and good times,

Maybe you are featured in this photograph from the 1960's??

As SWiB and FOTONOW undertake a watery adventure together with archival images, we would love to hear about your tales of days at the ocean's edge in Plymouth, Stonehouse and Devonport.

Contribute to your City's heritage by sharing a story over a coffee and help evolve the living archive with SWiB & FOTONOW. Please get in contact with JON BLYTH at gro.wonotof|noj#gro.wonotof|noj / 07944660907 or STACEY DYER at moc.tcennoctb|knabegamiWS#moc.tcennoctb|knabegamiWS / 01752665445"
