Scarborough’s Grand Hotel from near Belmont Road.

Originally constructed in 1863, it was one of Europe's first purpose-built hotels, with a design based on time; 4 towers - 4 seasons, 12 floors - the months, 52 chimneys for weeks and 365 bedrooms for the day of the year! (Text from an unofficial hotel web site LinkExternal link )

The fog or sea fret LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) is very familiar to those who live by or regularly visit England’s North Sea Coast.
