In 1892, photographer Paul Martin took a trip to Yarmouth. There on the Norfolk coast he set up his camera, disguising it as a leather box, and took some remarkable candid photographs of fellow holiday makers. Martin’s photographs make up a new show at the V&A’s Museum of Childhood, Victorians at the Seaside: Photographs by Paul Martin. The work opens to the public on April 20, 2009 and runs to July 24, 2009.
