Photos of Whitby from 1922

Whitby Holiday Snaps, from 1922

These photographs were taken in 1922 by the grandparents of Christine and Janine (nee Watson) while they were on holiday in Whitby. Christine and Janine lived in Leeds at the time and so spent their holidays, shop/work outings and whitsuntide on the east coast.

"We have these old photographs of my dad and his mother in Whitby - it's really interesting to see how people dressed up to go on the beach! Many men wore shirt and tie and the women completely covered up. We do hope you enjoy looking at the photographs; it's such a shame when they are shut away in albums.

Christine and janine"
