From Local Artist Neill C. Woods this is one of a range of postcards reminiscent of the postcards by Donald McGill whose seaside scenes and scantily clad ladies were all the rage from the 1930’s to the 1980’s.
In the background is The Spanish City which was a permanent funfair in Whitley Bay. It opened in 1910 as a concert hall, restaurant, roof garden and tearoom with a ballroom and funfair added later.
By the late 1990’s the building was falling into disrepair and in the early 2000’s it was closed to the public.
