The ”Play-up Notts”
Visitors and excursionists to Skegness at Whitsuntide cannot fail to be struck with the novel and attractive bathing machines of Messrs. Ward and Dunkley, which are about to be placed on the sands.
They are painted in the imposing colours of the ”Play-up Notts” Club – blue and chocolate – and we understand that the ”jockeys” are to be attired in costumes of similar colours, and will no doubt prove very attractive to those wishing for a dip in the briny ocean.
