This Valentine’s postcard view of the lower Spa bank, Bank café and with Huntcliffe beyond dates from the 1940s or 1950s. As it is unused it is still in remarkable condition.

Skelton ‘New’ Church

Skelton 'New' Church

Post marked 1905, this Frith’s postcard view of Skelton church. The church was consecrated in 1884, this image possibly dates from shortly after that date.

Redcar

Redcar

This multi-view postcard from the ‘Jay Em Jay Series’ is from the early part of the 20th century. The promenading ladies in the earlier view must have had to hold on to their hats on windy days?

Saltburn Parish Church

This Frith’s postcard view is of Saltburn Parish church over open fields of the area now occupied by Hilda Place. It bears the message: “For the best Furnished Houses and Apartments, apply to W. Rapp & Sons Ltd., House & Estate Agents, Saltburn-by-the-sea.” Dating the card is more problematical, only the western side of Hilda Place had been built by 1920, so the image is probably from the late 19th century.

Lealholm

Saltburn from the Pier

Saltburn from the Pier

This delightful view taken from the rising seaward end of the pier; gives a real impression of the length. A postcard from the “Rapps’ Saltburn Arts Series” dates from the early 20th century; from the style of dress not the warmest of days?
