Seaside Promenade Photographers
Thank you to Douglas Beath, Tasmania, Australia
for the following advice relating to Cine
Snaps and similar companies operated at the seaside:
"A quickie that should save
your time. Don't look for a permanent address for seaside prom
photographers. The most you may find is the same card from other towns.
They were faraway-accented
itinerants who descended on resorts for a quick haymaking season.
The first (unsolicited) snap would be
a sham to hook the catch then, if the victim responded by accepting the
card, the smoothie would promptly step back and take "another" shot
"to be sure". They didn't waste film."
