support and assist the Priaulx Library and its work.

My apologies for the poor quality of this month’s fade-in video. Trying to get the tide, a reasonable day, a minimum number of vehicles parked in the way and me being in town to coincide proved difficult so, I’m afraid, you’ll have to make do with a great photo of the White Rock from around 1895 and an up-to-date one taken into the sun.

I can’t help feeling that the White Rock was a far more peaceful and welcoming place in those days. Although, I doubt that the White Rock Cafe was in existence then, which would be the downside.

Thanks to The Priaulx Library for the original photo.


My apologies -not a good modern photo
