EDITORS COMMENTS This aerial photograph, taken in July 1962, showcases the now-demolished St Leonards Lido in Hastings. The image, part of the esteemed Aerofilms Collection by Historic England, beautifully captures a moment frozen in time. The photo reveals a vibrant scene of recreation and leisure along the coastal town's shores. As one's gaze sweeps across the frame, an array of colorful umbrellas dotting the sandy beach comes into view. Sunbathers bask under the warm summer sun while children build sandcastles with glee. The focal point of this snapshot is undoubtedly the magnificent St Leonards Lido itself. Its grandeur is evident from above as it stands proudly against its seaside backdrop. With sparkling blue waters shimmering within its boundaries, it beckons visitors to indulge in aquatic delights and escape from their everyday worries. This historic print not only captures a specific place but also evokes nostalgia for an era when lidos were at their peak popularity – providing communities with spaces to cool off and enjoy quality time together during hot summer months. As we admire this remarkable image today, we are reminded of how our recreational landscapes have evolved over time yet remain integral to our collective memories. It serves as a poignant reminder that even though physical structures may fade away, their impact on local culture and cherished moments can endure forever.
