Scarborough Mere pictured in its heyday was a popular tourist attraction owned by Scarborough Corporation, with rowing boats, a café and putting green.
There was also a miniature Spanish galleon the Hispaniola which made trips across to ‘Treasure Island’ where holidaymakers could dig for Doubloons.
