Saltburn 150

Saltburn is a friendly seaside resort in the North-East of England.

These photographs were made to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Saltburn-on-Sea (August 2011) by presenting contemporary views of the town using the technologies of the time of its inception.

They are large format wet plate collodion shot direct on to glass plates (ambrotypes) and were originally exhibited at the Saltburn ArtsBank.
