Our True Intent is all for Your Delight: The John &hellip by John Hinde

5.0 out of 5 stars A childhood revisited, 28 Feb 2003
I was born in 1969 and lived for 19 years in Bognor Regis and occasionally visited Butlins in Bognor Regis during my childhood. The pictures in the book evoked strong memories of innocent times spent in this garish oddity that was clearly the greatest marriage of paint, textile and bad taste. The clarity of the images that unfold as you browse your way through leave the voyeur with little left to imagine of what a holiday might have been like in one of these places in the early seventies. One can only hope that one day, the only thing remaining of the Butlins entity will be some fond childhood memories and this book...anything else would be too much
