Nostalgia: Warwick Revolving Tower

Warwick Revolving Tower.
Warwick Revolving Tower.

Picture shows the Warwick Revolving Tower situated above Scarborough’s North Bay.

The tower was owned by the Warwick Revolving Tower Company and opened to the public in 1898.

Although the owners had been supported by shareholders throughout England, the company was in trouble by late 1900 and wound up in 1902.

Scarborough’s tower lasted until 1907, when it was removed as an eyesore.
