Two typical line-ups for the 'Bouncing Baby' Competition. Or, as we used to call it:

BUTLINS SKEGNESS 1980 FATHER & SON

The idea of the 'Dad & Lad' competition was to find the son who looked most like his father,
which didn't give much of a chance to the sons of the men with beards and moustaches.
