The Whitby Donkeys

Dating from the 1950s this postcard view shows the Whitby donkeys awaiting their riders under the Battery Parade, although one seems a trifle hesitant about the whole experience! No visit to the beach was complete without the donkey ride, provided you were small enough; even more so today. Even larger children being deemed to be to weighty, if memory serves me correctly even mumor dad sometimes had a ride.
