The building is still there in 2015 now serving as a cafe/restaurant but back in the 1930s it was Britain’s first solarium using ultraviolet light to provide year-round sunbathing on indoor sand. I have no idea what that white car is in the top postcard but it looks extremely grand. However, the second postcard, showing the building from the other side, shows a scene from the 1960s with a variety of British cars – Rover 2000, Vauxhall estate, Vauxhall Cresta, Mini, Sunbeam Alpine, Triumph Herald and lots more.
