Aerial photograph of St Margaret's Bay. c1920
An aerial photograph of St Margaret’s Bay looking south. This was taken before the building of The Edge in 1923 and before the building of of the white art deco houses at the far end of the bay in 1933. If you look carefully you can see a tennis match in progress in the courts next to the square building on the beach which started out life as a Coastguard’s boathouse but which by this stage was a holiday cottage.
