Sunbathing on Aberdeen Beach
The mid-20th century heyday of Aberdeen beach as a tourist destination.

Deck chairs were a popular feature of the beach up until the 1980s. They could be hired from three stations, each containing 1,800 chairs. Those with hoods were particularly in demand on sunny days.

Like the beach's bathing machines before them, the deck chairs were offered for public sale in 1998.

The Beach Shelter, with its clock tower, can also be seen in the background of this image. In addition to sheltering from the wind and rain, it was used as a landmark for reuniting youngsters separated from parents and as a meeting place before nights out at the nearby Beach Ballroom.

This well-known landmark was demolished in 1986. Its distinction clock tower was initially preserved, however, it was later damaged in storage and dismantled.
