PICTURES FROM THE BANISTER COLLECTION
Ursula Banister was one of the first people to contact me about the beach bungalows, after I wrote an introductory article for a local history magazine, way back in the autumn of 2004. With memories of childhood holidays on the beach before the Second World War, she has supplied me with much valuable background information, all of which will appear in the final library version of this project. For the web-site, however, here are some pictures from her family album which show the far north end of the Braystones row of bungalows in the late 1920s and 1930s. These images are taken from photocopies, not scans of the original photos, but I believe their historical interest outweighs quality considerations.
Here is 'Raltini'- now 'Saltaire', the northernmost surviving bungalow before the big gap towards Nethertown (number 59 in my modern photos). Ursula believes it was first known as 'Ocean View'.
