Robin Hood's Bay to Staithes
The Postcard Paintings of J. Ulric Walmsley
Published January 2017
In the early years of the 20th century, visitors to Robin Hood’s Bay and the surrounding villages of Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Staithes would buy postcards of paintings by J. Ulric Walmsley as treasured mementoes and souvenirs of the North Yorkshire coast.
Their appeal has spanned more years than the publishers could have imagined and now these images provide an invaluable record of those times.
Many of these cards are scarce and some of them no longer turn up for sale. However, here in this book – for the first time – is the complete collection of Ulric Walmsley’s delightful postcard paintings for present-day generations to enjoy.
