Island History Trust Image Collection


Daisy and Thomas Clayden, on holiday on the Isle of Wight, in 1960. Mrs Clayden recalls: We went twice once that year and again in 1964. The first time he had won some money, and we decided to spend it, so we took pot luck and we got a chalet. The second time went was when he retired - we had a fortnight then. It was very nice there. The first hovercraft were being built there, in a tiny little factory. We were living in Seysell Street then. by Mrs D. Clayden
