Queen’s Hotel, Station Street, Saltburn

A Phoenix series postcard view of the Queen hotel dating from c.1905; the impressive frontage of the Queen’s Hotel was angled and originally envisaged to form one part of a ‘circus’ of buildings, close to the approach road to the town’s railway station. Only one side of this ‘circus’ was ever completed; the Queen’s Hotel is built in distinctive white ‘Pease’ brick as is found in many buildings in the town. Known today by many residents as “The Swingdoors” the building was intended as part of an impressive approach to the railway station entrance.

Obviously quiet enough for the two young men to sit on the lamp-post base, undisturbed by possible passing traffic; it would not be possible in today’s traffic.

    Opposite the Queen’s Hotel across the road to the right of the picture, stands what was latterly known as Albion Terrace Methodist Church (now Saltburn Community Hall and Theatre). My parents married at that church in 1933 and their marriage certificate refers to the location as “Regent Circus Methodist Church”.
