Bryan
I went to Yarmouth many years ago with David Wilde and I took this picture of these two strange chaps.
Perhaps this might help your list.

The old pictures are very interesting. I doubt if the one with the circus in the background was on the beach as the beach is not so close. Mike Wallis did his amusing show on Britannia Pier, but never on the beach. Guy has only one post card left from the thousands he sold and a copy is attached. It was taken between 1975 and 1980.
I believe that Prof. Baggs will be trying the beach at Hemsby as well. Guy suggests that Lowestoft might be better than Yarmouth since the Council cut the beach off from the front with a leisure centre. Bryan Clark might have something to say about that. JA

On the Hippodrome picture what you have to remember is that the promenade was not where it is now but alot closer then. Where this shotwas taken is now a crazy golf course.

Took this image from a DVD about Great Yarmouth by the East Anglian Film Archive. It is dated late 50's. Not sure who it is but on the film you can clearly see a character with a coffin.
