This fascinating collection of around 200 old photographs shows many scenes from the recent past of this attractive seaside town on the Yorkshire coast. The town was once described as 'consisting of three streets, one known in parts as Westgate, Market Place and Southgate. Another known as Eastgate and a third, which is called Newbegin extending some three hundred yards, more or less, towards the sea'. Although written over two hundred years ago, this description still fits the town today. After centuries of gradual evolution, the pace of change accelerated following the opening of the Hull to Hornsea railway in the late nineteenth century and the building of the ill-fated pier. The railway opened up Hornsea as a sea-side resort and the resulting increase in affluence brought changes to Hornsea that can be readily followed in the pages of this book.
