Lower Largo Beach Front
Very little seems to have changed during the period between the capturing of these two images of the seafront to the east of the Crusoe Hotel. The black and white image is undated but appeared as a postcard in the 1960s. A quick 'spot the difference' shows that a chimney stack has been removed from the sea-facing end of the Crusoe Hotel, The hotel's immediate neighbour, the Old Baptist Meeting House, has been transformed into a holiday cottage - whitewashed and extended. Some trees in the background have grown but overall the scene is reassuringly similar.

The black and white photograph I think is pre-1950.The Baptist Meeting House is by the Crusoe hotel. A cottage was adjoining the Meeting House that was 'let out to visitors.' One can see the wooden storm shutters on the three windows of the Meeting House. In the sea wall surrounding the Baptist Meeting House was a small stone shed which was used by a fisherman to store and mend creels.
