Ship Inn, Lifeboat and Rocket Launcing Buildings at Old Saltburn

This unused postcard view of the Ship Inn, Lifeboat House and Rocket Lifesaving Apparatus House dates from the late 1800s, at that time the range of terraced cottages beyond the Ship Inn is clearly visible. Old Saltburn as it was known then was still a community and recognised as such by the Saltburn Improvement Company which developed Saltburn as a fashionable seaside resort. How it has shrunk today!
