As promised here is a copy of the photographs from the album which records a holiday to this area in 1899 by a family as yet unnamed.
Refer to viewtopic.php?f=23&t=10419
Each photograph has been titled as it appeared in the album.
Some photographs in the album have appeared on this site a few years ago but the majority haven't.

South Eldon was a guest house run by the Misses Pearl and Sarah Kells (aunts of Dorothy Kells/McComb) in the 1960/70s. I think it may have been No.16 Seaview which is indeed a few houses past the Balmoral.

Just to (finally) bring closure to this post, this is South Eldon today - No 17 Seaview - I'm not sure it's occupied at the moment as it looks a little run down, I've cropped out the name from above the door and added it to the bottom of the photo.

Sad to see is allowed to go to ruin and if it was for sale they would want a kings ransom for it.Should be some sort of law about the up keep of houses.

Sad indeed, houses of this quality,
and location, shouldn't look like this.

Owners should be obliged to maintain
the exterior at least.!

How awful to see this house now
in such a run down condition.
It is in a beautiful location,
and probably would take a lot
of money now to repair it.

I'm sure there may be some reason why the house is in that state, but it begs the question as to why it was not also allocated a nice free paint job in the same way that Cole's Corner, the Osborne and another house on Osborne terrace were? I think I read somewhere that there was more money available to do a few more property's up, and that would be a prime candidate - however, maybe the current owners are in the process of doing something? It looks like it may have been flats at one stage, if I had the money I'd be jumping to get in there!

Brian - I know if I had some
extra spare change, I would
definitely invest it on that
property.
You couldn't beat the location.

That chimney is in serious
need of attention.

When the frost comes it is
likely to split apart.
