The map of Scarborough 1852 shows the town at the dawn of its rapid development into one of Britain's leading seaside resorts. Essentially the core of the town is hardly larger than it was as a medieval walled borough with the old west gate, New Bar, shown as only a few hundred yards away from the surrounding field system. The two structures so important to the future prosperity of the resort are nevertheless in place, namely the Spa and the newly completed railway station. The South Cliff area shows the early building of the finest terraces of the town, later to become hotels, and, on the North Cliff, more modest rows are seen which were to cater to an emerging boarding house clientele. The area was still, however, dominated by the old world....the windmill.
