A postcard from Butlins

Butlins: 1960s pleasure dome
Before the advent of cheap package holidays, for many of us here was only one place to enjoy yourself - Butlins.

From tomorrow (Friday) you'll be able to re-live its golden age when archive postcards from the fifties and sixties go on display at an exhibition in London.

Breakfast sent Caroline Thomsett for a sneak preview.


  • Photographs of Butlins holiday camps throughout the years are on display in a special exhibition at the Photographers' Gallery, London, from November 29 to January 18, 2003.

    There is also a book to accompany the exhibition. It's called Our True Intent is for All Your Delight: The John Hinde Butlins Photographs. It's published by Chris Boot at 24.95. ISBN 0 9542813 06
