seaside violence through the years

In Piddledorf, I found these old photos.

The old dear (on the left) in the 1920s, with her chums at the beach:

Here, her pals seem to have turned on her:

Her sons at the same beach in the 60s:

After that photo, one of them took a shovel to the forehead of the other, severing a nerve in the process.


  1. Ah the small joys of childhood.

    Interesting the memories that are brought to mind when we look at old pictures.

  2. I say!

    Such sweet innocence, hiding inner violence. Izzit coz they were Germans?

  3. Albert? Pity you didn't manage to kill your brother. It would have made the inheritance situation twice a bright!! Hotboy

  4. Nanners. Yes looking at old snaps can really jog the memory. And I believe it's been shown to reduce aging, or stave off dementia.

    Hotters. Have you any old photos you could look at? PS It was the brother who was trying to kill me.

    Mingers. Coincidentally, they were indeed Bavarians, or Bavario-Caledonians, who are equally prone to violence. I believe Africans are peace loving.

  5. Albert? Only the evil bourgeois could afford cameras in them days. Hotboy

  6. Hotters. Yes those basturns were good at saving up their pocket money. I gather your pal David Cameron is doing his bit to spread the practice of deferred gratification more widely across your society. PS You joined the moneyed elite just in time!
