Photographic postcard of Praa Sands from Rinsey Head. Taken around 1948, Lesceave Hotel can be seen on the top right hand side of the photograph. Fence posts can be seen along the cliff path. There are cars parked on the green at the bottom of Hendra Lane, and the World War II "pill box" can just be made out on the cliff edge, this is now on the beach. In this photograph few bungalows can be seen along the top of the cliff going towards Praa Green, there are now bungalows all along that stretch of cliff.
