Most interesting conan, thanks; amazing how crowded the beach could get in the Victorian era- standing room only! I note that just before the outbreak of WW2, the total of " private dwellings that took in visitors" was 3,500 compared with a total of all other accommodtion- hotels, boarding houses, etc.- was just over 3000.
