Vintage Caravanning, it was before the 20th century when camping holidays really started. The first real holiday camp spots where nothing like today’s resort like facilities that will give most 5 star resorts a run for their money. Even though times have changed the one thing that remains is the joy camping and getting away gives us all.
It’s funny to see how well dressed these campers are and considering running water wasn’t probably available I take my hat off and salute our camping ancestors.
Camping and caravanning holidays became popular in the 1960s as an alternative holiday to stopping in a hotel or boarding home.
Here, we take a historical look back at how people back then spend their spare time under canvas and inside mobile sheds.
We would love to see some of your early camping memories.
