Brighton Beach Huts Sunset Print

From: £30.00

Brand new prints featuring the most popular Linescapes designs with a beautiful and colourful sunset-inspired background.

In 1789, George III gave royal approval to the new fashion for sea bathing by taking a medicinal dip in the sea at Weymouth, Dorset, from the prototype beach hut. The ‘hut’ was actually a room on wheels with a collapsible hood, which was drawn into the water by a horse. The King was then plunged naked into the sea by burly attendants called dippers. Later, the Victorians popularised the trend. Patrons would hire them by the half-hour, disappearing into them to change into bathing costumes. Horses would then pull them into the sea so they could step discreetly into the water with only their heads visible to onlookers. The bathing machines remained in active use on English beaches until the 1890s, when they began to be parked on the beach. By the 1950s, beach huts were enjoying their heyday and the coast of Britain was ribboned by brightly coloured rows of them.
