Whitby is an ancient coastal town in North Yorkshire built around the mouth of the River Esk, and today it is a popular holiday resort attracting visitors wanting to sample the beach, fish and chips, the steam railway, festivals, coastal and moorland walks, and the town’s regattas. The years between 1919 and 1939, sandwiched between two terrible wars, are a fascinating period in the town’s history and shaped much of what is the present resort.


In Whitby Between the Wars, this significant but neglected period is explored using pictures and modern photographs to give us an understanding and appreciation of how these years influenced and, in many cases, helped save this quaint town.
