Hinde was a pioneer in color photography and by the 1960s was operating one of the world's most successful postcard publishers. These photographs, featuring saturated colors and elaborate staging, were taken for his firm during the holiday camp's heyday, the 1960s and 1970s. They show holiday makers enjoying the chalets and swimming pools, monorails and boating lakes, ballrooms and theme bars of Butlin's parks. N. B.
