This oil painting from 1949 shows a boy and girl climbing the Bayle Steps from Folkestone Harbour. The boy is carrying a bucket and spade. Both have towels tucked under their arms. It looks like they’re heading home after a day on the beach. Perhaps they’re returning from Sunny Sands – the popular sandy beach to the east of the harbour?
