Saltburn Parish Church

This Frith’s postcard view is of Saltburn Parish church over open fields of the area now occupied by Hilda Place. It bears the message: “For the best Furnished Houses and Apartments, apply to W. Rapp & Sons Ltd., House & Estate Agents, Saltburn-by-the-sea.” Dating the card is more problematical, only the western side of Hilda Place had been built by 1920, so the image is probably from the late 19th century. Christine Pollard assists with: “The foundation stone for the tower was laid on 7th August 1900 and the tower dedicated on the 5th April 1902. The chancel was rebuilt after the Great War in 1914-18 and the upper east windows were dedicated to the fallen men on the 10th December 1922, so this photograph was somewhere after 1902.”
