The promenade may be a little narrower and the road wider and busier, but Deal (in Kent, England) looks very much the same now as it did then. I'm not entirely sure what "then" might have been, but maybe someone with an eye for fashion could tell me. If you click on the image you will see a much larger one. Although the pier looks the same as it does now, it must be different because it was rebuilt for the third time in 1954.
You can still see parents pushing their children along beside the sea, although the prams do look very different now. The most common sight though, is a child being carried while the parent drags/pushes a tricycle or scooter or something similar. No doubt they are failed attempts to encourage a child to move under his or her own steam.
