Lower Promenade, Saltburn

Lower Promenade, Saltburn

Another very dated view of the beach and promenade at Saltburn, this postcard views serves to remind us how dress styles have changed over the years. You dressed up to go to the beach; nowadays minimal clothing is the norm (and lashings of factor 50+ sun cream). John Keelty tells us: “My father used to take me and my twin brother, Peter to Saltburn and we used to ride up and down in the rail car from the beach to the promenade. When my father went for a pint in the Ship Inn, there was a big green hill, of grass were we used to play till he came out. Sometimes we used to share a bag of potato crisps if he was sat outside. There were lots of happy memories when we were young, in 1955. He used to take us once a year, to the seaside, and we always liked Saltburn; we got ice cream and used to walk along the pier.”
