Not really I was 13 in 1963. I would have been train spotting in those days.

Helicopter Carriage, Donkey rides, Golden Arrow on the pier, the sounds inside the amusement arcade at the end of the pier, the shop I bought my fishing tackle from, it's all there.
We went to WSM throughout the sixties, initially by coach and later by car. A day trip to find accommodation for a week later in the year wasn't unusual.

Thanks for the memories Lyn.
