Talk at Downe Arms by Christine Hepworth

‘A Walk down Scarborough’s Main Street’  is the title of a talk to be given by Christine Hepworth at our meeting on Wednesday 4th April at the Downe Arms Hotel.Christine has been an active member of the Scarborough & District Civic Society for many years and has a wealth of knowledge about Scarborough and its history. 

In her own words,  “From a collection of photographs in the Library archive we selected pictures of buildings in Scarborough’s main street. We then took photographs of the same buildings in 2016

It makes an interesting journey in both time and place from the top of Westborough down to the harbour and back.”
