Wood's Lodgings/St. Nicholas Cliff  (c.1840) 'Grand Hotel' - St. Nicholas Cliff (1996)

ABOVE:  The old sketch shows St. Nicholas Cliff around 1840. On the left are Wood's Lodgings, beyond and behind which is Scarborough's South Bay. It was in these buildings where Anne stayed during her first few years at Scarborough with the Robinson family. The smaller buildings (in the centre of the block) were demolished in 1842, and a larger structure erected in their place (see 'Wood's Lodgings (2)' - link below). The photograph (right) shows the same view today with the Grand Hotel standing on the site of Wood's Lodgings.

OPPOSITE:  The plaque which is mounted on the wall of the Grand Hotel indicating that Anne 'died in a house on this site on May 28th. 1849'.
