Life in Whitby 100 years ago was completely different from London and Thackeray captures this very well in the first of his 12 Whitby cards.




This picture was so popular that it went on to be produced with a number of different seaside towns named on the card!


The new hobby of photography was very much in vogue.

We are trying to collect all 12 of Thackeray's Whitby cards but we still have a long way to go, so we are especially grateful to Sheila Hall, an expert on Thackeray, for providing us with copies of the cards we are still hunting for.
