About the show

Chris Fright one of the last remaining photographers to work for Sunbeam photos. Known by thousands all over the country. An Iconic figure, who would be the last to acknowledge such an accolade. Chris was to many Mr Sunbeam. Interviewed here by an ex work colleague and now sound producer Roger Allen, his recall of a period of Margate's Hey Day is an archive in its own right.

I remember Chris taking photos at Walpole Bay when I used to holiday in Cliftonville as a boy in the 70s. We used to rent a beach chalet every year.
I still have a Sunbeam photo of my when I was about 8 standing next to the Mickey Mouse that Chris used to carry round with him.
We always stayed at the Ruxley Hall Hotel on Surrey Road.
Happy days :)
