Using a selection of objects including beach huts, railway posters and badges, Kathryn Ferry will explore the development of seaside tourism along the Lincolnshire coast from its Victorian beginnings to post-war heyday. She will look at how two key figures - the Jolly Fisherman and Billy Butlin - bought national recognition for Skegness and how resort infrastructure changed to meet evolving holiday aspirations.
