We are sincerely
to PETER R. STEELE who,
following an appeal on this
website for photos, sent me the following ones, with permission to
them with you.
This aerial shot is taken facing East, with the
Bank flats in
the foreground, the main camp centre, and the sea in the background.
From L-R the buildings are:
Regency, Empress, Queens, Ingoldmells
The plane is just above the Boating Lake, looking
Queen's Building top right, and the Ingoldmell's Hotel top left.
In the foreground, and moving away we have:
Lincoln Dining Room, York Dining Room, Clock Building,
Peter has had a
strong connection to Butlins
since he first went on holiday there in 1973.
Peter's other love
flying. In 1977 when these
photos were taken, he was a fourteen year old passenger, but now he is,
What a shame that
subsequent aerial shots
he takes will show a totally different landscape.
PETER R. STEELE
