My goodness... Jean, the seaside landlady  in Blackpool, certainly worked hard during holiday season!  :O

I guess she had it a little easier in winter.

And in the second clip, why are the trash cans so dusty?  Did people dispose of the dust and ashes from their coal furnaces in them?  I guess that's why they were called ash cans and dust bins.

And both clips were produced by the Rank Film Distributors, which must be connected with the Rank Organisation, which produced feature films as well. I always have to laugh when I see the gong man at the beginning of one of their films. :D

Yep....the ashes from the grate went in the dustbin,along with all the other rubbish.

Seaside B+B’s with evening meals were generally open Easter to September (October in Blackpool for the illuminations).Those that still exist are now often  year round.
