A SCARBOROUGH author presented his latest book at a signing at the Antique and Collectors’ Centre in St Nicholas Cliff.

Robin Lidster, of Newby, has completed a series of four “then and now” photographic books focusing on local areas of interest such as the old Scarborough to Whitby railway line.

The latest is Newby & Scalby Through Time, which the author says he enjoyed working on immensely.

Mr Lidster, a retired museums worker, said: “I’ve been collecting old photos and picture postcards of the area for 30 years, so I thought I should go round and see what the present-day views look like.

“It makes you realise that things have changed more than you thought.

“It’s been very enjoyable.

“To be given this opportunity by Amberley Publishing has been a godsend.”
