The title is taken from the reverse of this image but gives no indication of date, it appears to be the committee or a specific group; possibly connected to the Women’s Institute. Can anybody assist?

This area probably adjacent to the fish quay, shows a Pier Road uncluttered wiuth amusements, fish and chip shops or hotdog stalls. How much quieter it must have been for the returning fishermen?

Whitby 9 - Kyber Pass and West Cliff
