Matt Houlbrook: mobile historian; beard growing, head shaving; occasional cycling.
Excited day trippers all set for a charabanc day trip outside the Carpenter’s Arms in Tickhill in South Yorkshire in 1920.
That’s a particularly stern, manly, Yorkshire definition of ‘excited’, of course, at least for the charabanc in the foreground. Apart from the jolly chap in a panama hat to the right, who actually does look like he might be having fun. (The straw boater to his left looks even more out of place, but at least the fellow wearing it looks properly grim.)
I think it’s what you might call Type 2 fun.
