Oh! I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Seaside Snaps is currently be held at Scarborough Art Gallery and is a collection of photographs showing the town through the years.

The exhibition is a fantastic array of images that are sure to kindle old memories and will, and most certainly did for me, open your eyes how Scarborough used to be.

The images date back to around the 1860s and features attractions that are long gone in the town but used to be iconic attractions.

These long gone attractions include the Gala Land amusement complex and the South Bay Pool but the exhibition also features such as the Rotunda Museums and Peasholm Park that are still going strong.

The photographs are accompanied by comments from the public which have been collected via a social media campaign.

Each of the photographs in the exhibition are from the Scarborough Collections, the name given to all the museum objects and art collected by the borough over the years, and now in the care of the Scarborough Museum’s Trust.

Entry to the exhibition is £3, which then includes entry fee to both Scarborough Art Gallery and the Rotunda Museum for a year.

The Gallery is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10am to 5pm, plus bank holidays.
