Saltburn from Huntcliffe

Saltburn from Huntcliffe

This early postcard view of Saltburn shows a varied collection of buildings along the shore before you can make out the Ship Inn and beyond. Callum Duff assists with dating with this detail: ”This photograph was taken sometime between 1920 – 1935. According to English Heritage the beach chalets were built between 1920 and 1929, a period which also encapsulates the building of The Beach Cafe (now Vista Mar). In 1935 the Spa Pavilion was extended adding the concrete apron of front windows which survive today.”
