VINTAGE GLASS NEGATIVE 27 Scarborough, Yorkshire, England, UK. Promenading at the Spa in the South Bay. In the distance, on the left, is the Grand Hotel. The man in the light suit in the group walking towards us is carrying a large camera. I would date the photograph at circa 1905. This image is a low resolution version of the original negative, captured photographically rather than with a scanner.
'Dick's Bar' Regent Palace Hotel, Piccadilly 1930. You can stil get a cocktail there - it's now Brasserie Zédel, 20 Sherwood Street http://www.brasseriezedel.com/bar-americain According to 'Architecture Today' Magazine, the interiors of Brasserie Zédel are “probably the best and most authentic series of 1930s interiors in this country". I carried out the paint analysis here http://patrickbaty.co.uk/2010/12/11/regent-palace-hotel-2/
