This photograph shows some of the Sunday school children from the Boston Free Churches about to start their annual outing to Skegness in 1926. It was taken in Wide Bargate, the Lincolnshire Standard offices can be seen centre left and on the extreme right is the General Post Office.

The journey was usually made by rail but due to what was described as the "coal troubles" they had to go by road, I assume this meant due to the General Strike of 1926.

Over 500 children, along with teachers, parents and friends were reported to have had a very enjoyable day.
