Another in the old postcard series

I love multiple image postcards - especially when they are in lovely sumptuously sunny over saturated colour but also when they are in lovely black and white too - as you know my mantra is - EVERYTHING looks better in black and white and this postcard also has the added appeal of a beautiful crinkle cut edge.

It was posted on 15 August 1960 at 4pm and was sent to Mr and Mrs Kirk in Kimberley from Lily and Eric who on holiday in the area. Their message in blue biro reads:

Dear Friends
As you will see we have moved onto Bognor but it's not as nice as Southsea, still it's better than work and a change. Eric says there is a marvellous Butlins camp here. Weather mixed but when the sun comes out it's really hot.
All the best
Lily and Eric.

I wonder what work Eric did and if Lily worked too and if they visited the Butlins camp and what attraction did Southsea have that made it better than Bognor?
