Photographic postcard of Kennack Sands, Kuggar, taken around 1948. The photograph is taken from above the lane which goes down to the beach. There are a couple of vehicles descending the lane with two women walking down next to them. Two vehicles are parked in a layby, with a man standing next to one and a lady sitting on a picnic blanket. In the centre of the photograph at the bottom of the rocks on the beach can be seen a building. Pill boxes and an anti tank wall were built on the back of the beach in case of invasion during World War II.
