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.
This shows the old Tynemouth Outdoor Pool which was built in the 1920’s as a salt water tidal pool. From 1970’s to 1990’s it fell into disrepair and is now just a rock pool located at the southern end of Tynemouth Long Sands.
In the background, on the cliff above the Longsands, is the Tynemouth Plaza which opened in 1878 but was destroyed by fire in 1996.
