Elliott Erwitt at Barry Island

This photograph was taken by ace Magnum snapper Elliott Erwitt in 1978. The location is Barry Island. Think he must have been on some kind of beach assignment that year as he also took photographs in Blackpool, Brighton and St Tropez. The above picture was taken at the long-since demolished Barry Butlins holiday camp which, as I recall, was a very popular summer destination for miners from the south Wales valleys.
