Whitley bay


This is an old postcard I was given of Whitley Bay in Northumberland. It is a bit of Nostalgia as I spent a lot of time here as a child. However I am not as old as the photo Ha.
We have had a lot of rain here so thought I would play about with this image. The colours will not be accurate they are my estimations from memories of the area and guess work but I hope you like the result of many hours of painstaking colouring. I have never had so much fun....
