Nostalgia: Scarborough Spa Suncourt

Entertainment in the Spa’s Suncourt is still as popular today as it was when this picture was taken in the early 1900s.

Visitors are being enterained by musicians in the bandstand, possibly the Scarborough Spa Orchestra which was created in 1912 by Alick MacLean. This first ensemble of 35 professional musicians gave daily concerts in the Grand Hall and Suncourt.
