Beside the Sea

  • Description

    This image shows the seafront at Seaton Carew. The objects on the beach showcase the area's rich maritme history along with the town's reputation as a popular holiday destination: the wheeled bathing huts, as seen in the right hand side of the picture, would have been pulled by horses and used by visitors to change under in order to preserve their modesty. The shop in the background belonged to the butcher, J Crosby. Photograph Collection Number 650
