OLD PHOTOS OF CARAVANNING HOLIDAYS

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have it of a weird request maybe, but, I'm working on a TV show for Tiger Aspect and need a bunch of period photos of caravans. Its a murder mystery set in a spooky old caravan park that hasn't changed since the 70s/80's. Like the one attached of me as a kid. The photos would be  use as dressing on the walls in the park reception cabin. They would be just deep background and not featured - they are really just to give a bit more texture and authenticity. I've tried looking on stock image web sites but not had much look- those all look very posed and too much like advertising shots. I wondered if any of your members had images of this sort and would be up for us using them?  Of course if they are we'd have do some legal/ permissions things through the production company. Looking forward to hearing form you. Many thanks, Thorin, Production Designer 'Dial M for Middlesbrough'

If they are of use to you, you may use these- provided they are only used as you outline in your post.     The first two were taken in 1969 and the third in 1975.

Sprite Musketeer on the back of a Mark I Cortina Estate, John? My father was going to buy the Musketeer for his first caravan in late 1966/early 1967 but then he saw the Sprite Major with the 'revolutionary' almost full width vent in the exaggerated/deepened roof curve, and nagged Mum until she relented. The leaks we had through that vent, and Mum reminded him every time it rained whilst towing ...

In 1968 I hired a Sprite Musketeer, which I towed with a Ford Concertina estate car, and took my family on a tour of North Wales.

A Ford Concertina? Did you have a rear end shunt, or should you have booked a folding caravan?:rolleyes:

Having had the models from Mk 1 to Mk 5 it was always thus named in our house.

When I worked for a national chain of photographic dealers in the late 1960s one Mk 2 estate allocated to me had Yale locks on all doors and tailgate plus a burglar alarm.
