It's Flippin' Pancake Day!

Well I never! I had no idea that it was Pancake Day until I saw it mentioned on Twitter first thing this morning. Has it really been a year since I saw pancakes sizzling on my frying pan last Shrove Tuesday? I suppose it must have been.

I noticed that SEAS Photography has been tweeting some historical pictures from the South East Archive of Seaside Photography today.

Taken at the 1958 Pancake Race at Station Road in Westgate-on-Sea, the photos are well worth a look so I asked for permission to share them on this blog to see what you think. Here's a couple more:

Do you remember the 1958 Westgate-on-sea pancake race? Were you there when these photos were taken? Share your memories below.
