There are now icons for all the sections and all the pages and a new navigation bar down the left hand side of each page. We hope that these help you navigate the increasingly large collection and rising number of pages and the classifications we have used are logical. If you spot any errors or cards where they shouldn't really be, please let us know.

We have started to add old videos of the town when we come across them. Many of them are conversions of old cine films and news reels and quite a few are linked back to YouTube feeds with the copyright owners duly credited. A few have been created by us for specific themes and more will be added in the months to come.
Now Postcards With Music!
December 4th 2013

3D Images Added
December 31st 2013
The Victorian stereoviews have now been painstakingly converted into 3D anaglyph images that can be viewed by standard blue and red lensed 3D glasses obtainable readily online from eBay, Amazon and our web site. The 3D conversions bring Victorian Scarborough to life and provide a rare glimpse into a world long past.
We now have a growing collection old maps of the town dating back from the start of the 19th century. There are also selective enlargements for each map to make viewing easier. If you are familiar with the town and want to know how it looked and how it has grown over the last 200 years, click the link below.
Every single card now has its card back as well as its front. Clicking on the card on each page will now show you a slideshow with three images including the date-stamped front, the original front and the card back with message and receipient.
