Butlin's Holiday Camp', 128pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 196mm. Photography and text by Barry Lewis. With an introduction by the photgrapher.
With its ‘glamorous grandmother’ competitions and endless entertainment, Butlin’s in the 80s was the ultimate British package holiday. Barry Lewis’ glorious photographs, taken during a particularly wet summer at Skegness, capture a defiant national spirit at a time when Billy Butlin’s original vision of ‘fun for all the family’ was under threat from cheap foreign travel and the faltering English weather.
