Teesside boasted some of the most fashionable and popular resorts of the time. These included Saltburn-by-Sea, with its Victorian architecture, cliff lift and famous pier, and Redcar with its sandy beaches stretching nearly eight miles. The LNER produced posters as well as holiday handbooks, with its famous strapline ‘It’s quicker by rail’, advertising seaside family fun such as paddling, building sandcastles and exploring rockpools.
