Saltburn from the Air – 1

This Aerofilms image of Saltburn (first of a series of five which have come to the Archive) can be dated by the break in the pier and the presence of the water tower on the Lune Street/Upleatham Street junction. The card is postmarked August 1924, and must have been recently produced. The schooner “Ovenbeg” broke a 70 metre gap in the pier on 8th May 1924, so would have been produced shortly after the boat had been removed from the beach. Note the space between Emmanuel church and the south side of Windsor Road which appears to be allotment gardens; also the covered platform of the railway station.
