DAVE Lascelles from Mablethorpe wanted to share these blasts from the past with his fellow readers.
He said the illustration on page four of the Leader a few weeks ago, supplied by Shirley Kennedy, showed what he thinks is part of the postcard pictured ‘Mablethorpe Pullover 1840’.
Dave thinks it could be part of a painting, but isn’t sure who the artist was.
“It shows the building, known as Utterby House, which over the years changed to be part of the Regent/Trellawny. Could also be known as Café Regent, Black Cat, South Sea Island, Ancient Mariner or American Whipped Ice-cream.”
Following the fire and subsequent demolition in 1985, it was all replaced by the Spanish City complex.
Dave has attached another postcard with the picture taken from the main promenade, possibly taken in the 1940s.
“The postcard also shows the town drain which in the very early days was open the whole length of High Street, now a culvert,” Dave added.
