This later became the Viewfirth Hotel and is now Foxes Hotel. Situated on Saltburn Road, the view has changed a lot. This tinted postcard probably dates from the early 1900s and carries the same crest as that shown in picture #452.

Comments:
My grandparents used to live there and we lived in Bella Vista six doors away. The kitchen was huge and the room on the left hand side facing you was the "big room"; it was let out in the winter occasionally for whist drives and bridge clubs. Each Xmas St Ninians next door would have the children's party there and we used to watch the jellies being made and Canon Mchardy would let us join in the games. The swimming pool was just over the road and as youngsters we just used to run along the road in our costumes. Most mothers bought a season ticket for the children and they knew where we were then - good clean salt water without a hint of chlorine! I always wanted to work in the office but that was the role of Mrs Hec Ross and Mrs Collins. I remember Robin Ross as a superintendent one year.

Was recently in the new Tuckers Inn and saw photos of girls hostel which it used to be. What was the purpose for this hostel and what girls used it?
