Donkey rides have been a feature of Backpool's sea front since the Victorian Era. Apart from the obvious contemporary features such as the girl's clothing, the plastic water bottle, this shot could be from any decade since then.
Nowadays, the donkeys get regular health checks & a day off on Fridays: it's alright for some!
The shot isn't B/W, just almost: heavily desaturated & all channels toned down & exposure tweaked.
