Description

Holidaymakers, many with umbrellas, on the beach at Llandudno on the north coast of Wales. Bathing machines, some labelled 'Ladies', are in use as a few hardy souls can just be seen in the water. In the distance is the pier which opened in 1878. Photograph published by Francis Bedford & Co. Francis Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer of the mid-19th century, best known for his many topographic and architectural views of Britain. In 1857 he became a member of the Photographic Society but from the 1870s, his son, William (1846-1893) seems to have assumed responsibility for running the family business and many photographs of this later period are more likely to be the work of William rather than that of his father.
