Whitby- West Cliff Saloon and West Cliff.

19. This card showing the West Cliff and the West Cliff Saloon was sent to convey Christmas Greetings for Christmas 1904. It seems strange to us today th at a view card of this type should have been used for this purpose, but at that time it was quite common place to do this.

20. This shows the cottages nestling at the foot of the steep cliffs at Runswiek Bay, Whitby. It is on the way to Whitby from the north by the co ast route. This is from a painting by the artist A.R. Quinton.

21. This card of I 913 shows visitors making the long and steep climb up the famous 199 steps to the church. It was obviously a very hot day as a parasol is in evidence and it must have been a very tiring climb for these ladies in their long dresses complete with long sleeves.

22. This view of Whitby Harbour, taken from the Town Station, with the Angel Hotel Vaults clearly shown certainly did impress the sender in 1919 who wrote: We are delighted with the country and sea, together with the high cliffs and mountainous scenery makes the surroundings bath beautiful and bracing.

23. This view of Whitby from Larpool in 1904 failed to impress the writer who remarked:

It is not nearly so nice as it appears to beo Not a patch on Scarborough.

24. This harbour scene is pre-1906. Clustered in the centre foreground are three places of worship which reflects the strong tradinons of seafarers and religion.

25. Although there were many tragedies off the North Bast Coast, this picture is a happier nautical scene as it shows the paddle steamer Bilsdale crowded with holiday makers. This photo was taken at Whitby with the Abbey and the church in the background.

26. It was on the 28th of December 1930 that the Swedish vesse1 Lucy came aground near Kettleness. Then some fifteen months later the fate of this luckless Swedish steamer was finally settled when on March 22nd, 1931 the Lucy was burnt out at Sandsend, Whitby.

27. This well-known land mark is the windmill at Ugthorpe near Whitby. Sadly like sa many other windmills it is na langer working today although it was in 1930. It is a pity that in those days there were no preservation orders to proteet such buildings,

28. The harbour mouth at Whitby showing the lighthouse, which is a landmark for all the cargo vessels making for port.
