Charabanc outings were very popular means of seeing the countryside by people on holiday in Weaton [sic] Super Mare. The photograph was taken by F.A.F. Hardwick of Banwell, who had an arrangement with Weston coach operators that their charabancs would stop for photographs at Banwell. By the time of the return journey the photo’s would be ready for sale. The people in the charabanc are not known.
Photo about 1936.
