The Grand Hotel was built with four towers around the notion of the seasons, 12 floors, 365 rooms. It was the largest brick built hotel in Eiurope on its completion.

My image is perhaps not the 'normal' view of the Grand, i wanted to give scale to the height of the building and so chose a viewpoint from one of the paths that lead to the beach, a young couple are approaching.

Alternative title:-  'Grand Hotel the happy couple'

G is for Grand Hotel , is the seventh page in my limited eidition book titled 'An Alphabet of Scarborouygh', published in an edition of just 26 fully bound copies in 2017
