A photograph showing a couple at the seaside sheltering under an umbrella, taken by Webster for the Daily Herald newspaper in 1968. This photograph was taken to show the typical British weather that holidaymakers often have to put up with. The couple look to have been caught in the rain unexpectedly as the woman is in a summer dress with just a cardigan to wrap around her. The rain has not stopped them from smiling, however. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
