Scarborough Then and Now

 Scarborough South beach area has changed very little since 1900 when the first photo was taken with its mobile bathing huts. Scarborough is now a very multicultural place with all nationalities mixing happily on the beach with their different cultural dress.

The harbour has obviously changed a lot from the busy dock of the 1900s to a place of leisure. The painting was done by Frederick William booty and you can see from the following two photos how the artist's licence has allowed him to elongate the whole scene even though he is viewing from an apparent higher point.
