Beside the Seaside: snapshots of British coastal life, 1890-1950 opens today at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It's a exhibition of vintage photos plus other seaside-related artefacts. The NMM blog gives a good glimpse behind the scenes - check out the Punch and Judy puppets.

There's a Beside the Seaside Flickr group running for the duration of the exhibition and photos from it will be displayed by the museum, both on their website and in the galleries. Disclosure: The NMM are paying me to moderate this group - my pleasure! There's been a good turnout from the Flickr Seaside Massive and there are some great photos there already, like the two above of the Jubilee Pool, Penzance by sareypoppins and Applecross by Michael Prince. Do join in and add your favourites.

Ah, that's in my neck of the woods, so I shall be popping along...

Cool post. Came across your blog whilst researching open air sea pools and bang! Brixham, where I live has a great seapool called Shoalstone. So I'll check out this Flickr group and upload!

Great! Thanks for visiting Shauna.

Found your site a while ago from a link on http://www.midlandhotel.org I'm hoping to get down to the exhibition. I've also added a couple of pics to the flickr group.
