Oh, we’ve always liked to be beside the seaside
As summer draws to a close for another year, hopefully many of us will be able to look back on happy holiday memories from the past few months.
Many of those memories will revolve around the seaside, whether that is North Yorkshire’s gorgeous coastline or elsewhere. That is all the excuse we need to take a trip back in time to glimpse how our parents, grandparents and beyond enjoyed the coast.
Once again, archivists from North Yorkshire’s County Record Office have chosen a variety of historic images to tell the story.
One thing is clear, the lure of sea and sand is eternal. We have always liked to beside the seaside.
The archive images on this page are among more than 6,500 available at the County Record Office. Browse the collection or buy photos.
If you have any further information about any of the images on this page, our archivists would be keen to hear about it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
