Lower Entrance to Cliff Lift in 1929


Dating from 1929, this postcard image of the beach promenade at Saltburn, gives a wonderful view of people ‘taking the air’ in all their finery. The lift buildings have maintained their character through the years. Originally posted as a black and white image, another source has provided a much better image of the lower promenade; interesting the postcard was produced by the same company. Perhaps a more expensive or ‘up-market’ offering?

    Seems strange to see the space by the railings in front of the pier not occupied by the large red sea mine from WWII that was a constant presence throughout my childhood.
