Description

Camping coaches were converted railway carriages that families or groups of friends could hire, and stay in for their holiday. They usually contained a bedroom and bathroom, kitchen and living room. They were situated on "camp sites" in railway sidings at different places across Britain, particularly at coastal resorts and in the countryside. Models posed for this photograph, which was taken for publicity purposes. The women still had to do the cooking even when they were on holiday!
