Men, women and children wander past the parade of shops at Butlin's Holiday Camp, Filey. Left to right, the labels above the shops are: Photos, Sportswear, Shoe Shine, Post Office, Newsagent, Costumes and Radio Butlin. The original caption states that each Butlin's camp is a completely self-contained holiday town, and Filey "even has its own railway station, a part of the LNER". The shoe shine is an important shop, because, according to the original caption "each week a prize of a week's free holiday is given to the man with the shiniest shoes".
