The Yorkshire coast and its resorts enjoyed a Golden Age that began after the First World War. Through the 1920s and '30s crowds seemed to grow every year with the introduction of holidays with pay, cheaper travel and more white-collar work. A week, or even a fortnight, at the coast seemed everybody's idea of the perfect holiday. These happy times returned after the 1939-45 war, but then travelling abroad in search of the sun came into fashion and a decline in the coastal holiday trade was inevitable. This pictorial book is designed to rekindle memories of the Golden Age. Using remarkable photographs from the archives of the Yorkshire Post and other local sources, it focuses on a number of broad themes such as "Getting There", "Where to stay", "On the sands" and "What to do". It is certain to bring happy thoughts brimming back to those lucky enough to have known the Yorkshire coast in its heyday.
