Exploring Scarborough's tourism heyday through the art and posters of the time.
Including the hugely popular Railway and Corporation posters and rarely seen watercolours of Victorian Scarborough. This exhibition will explore Scarborough's place in history as the first seaside resort and will cover popular themes such as the coming of the railways, the beneficial qualities of sea bathing and the saucy seaside postcard as well as some of the hidden stories of life in a major seaside resort.
Many of our lunctime talks during the exhibition will be themed to further explore the history behind the poster and objects on display.
