Scarborough's history dates back to Roman and Viking times when
invaders from overseas landed on the town's beaches. Well-to-do
Victorians, invaders of a different kind, used the newly-created
railways to flock to Scarborough to take the restorative waters,
resulting in the town becoming Britain's first seaside resort. This
fascinating volume captures the essence of the town and its people
over the decades in a series of photographic pairings which record
some of Scarborough's lost landmarks, such as the North Bay
Promenade Pier, the arch at Newborough Bar and the town's two
swimming pools. Illustrated throughout with carefully selected
pictures and photographs of Scarborough's past and modern colour
photographs of the same scenes today, this book will delight any
lover of Scarborough and its history.
