Amongst seaside towns in the UK, Tenby in Pembrokeshire (historically Dyfed), Wales, is particularly lovely. It is distinguished for its Regency and Georgian architecture emulating the beauty of Bath and other spa towns which came to prominence in the 18th century. This early photograph of Tenby is a photochrom image taken some time between 1890-1910, one could say, the golden age of the postcard. The pretty pastel colours of Tenby’s houses can be seen in the centre of the picture.
Tenby is one of the towns featured in the forthcoming title: Photochrom photography 1890 – 1910: The British Isles in Colour - Wales.
