101 : A Deckchair Suspended High Above A Pine Forest


This scanned negative comes from the same set as the Jersey series, but this time our holidaymakers have left domestic shores and, it would appear, gone to the Alps. Looking at the scene through twenty-first century eyes, one cannot help noticing the flimsiness of the chairlift - it has the look of a deckchair suspended from wires high above a pine forest. After the comparative safety of a Jersey beach and tearoom our 1950 tourists are living life dangerously.

  1. That would be scary for me, perhaps the tourists were thrillseekers:)
