A Holiday Afloat 1932 - Wherry Yacht White Heather

Recommended Posts

I've just finished my last bit of website work for Broadland Memories before Christmas and thought it may be of interest if you have a bit of time to spare over the holiday. I was recently sent the most fabulous journal and accompanying photographs from a holiday afloat on the wherry yacht White Heather in 1932 - i am truly honoured to have been given permission to publish it online! It is so we'll written, peppered with humour, full of detail and such an interesting read not only from a local history point of view, but as a fantastic piece of social history in general. How travel and holidays have changed .... or not!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and all the best for 2019!

Thanks for sharing Carol - I can just remember bloaters being posted off to relations as souvenirs of trips to Yarmouth from a shop on a corner opposite a pier.
