Here we have a picture of the Swan Boats that children used to peddle around in on the moat that crossed the field behind Stokes Bay, followed by two pictures of the tea rooms that were where Stokes Bay Sailing club now stands. Ladies would take tea on the beach which they had carried down from the café on trays. The children’s Paddling Lake that was on the playing field and the Fleet Review of 1937 shows many people enjoying the spectacle of our once large navy: the pier can be seen in the background.
We also have photographs of the many crowds lining Stokes Bay to watch the 1929 Schneider Trophy air race. Britain won the Cup 3 times, 1927, 1929 and 1931.
