The foreshore at the eastern end of the town, looking east. This picture was used for a postcard and the postmark was for 1935. The Swimming Pool was located close to this spot.

Think this might be earlier than 1935. There is no sea-wall or pavement.

Yes Harry and also no swimming pool. This looks about just where the "Pool" was in our young day, - big changes since this picture was taken that's for sure.

Hello Harry, looks like there is no proper road either.

My parents lived in the house next door to what was the Viewfirth Hotel (previous to that occupied by Johnny Boyd and family) - this house is not in the picture. I believe that the house was built round about 1924; therefore this picture certainly pre dates that.
I now live in the house next door on the town side of the flat roofed house and it is difficult to see whether the house is there or not because of the trees but it looks unlikely. My house was built in 1915 so the picture most likely pre dates that also.
It would seem therefore that the picture is likely to be pre first world war. Liz Adam (Askew) was brought up in the old Viewfirth Hotel and her parents later lived in the flat top house and she may be able to date the building of the Viewfirth.
