Nostalgia: Scarborough Mere

editorial image

Scarborough Mere pictured in its heyday with the popular Mere cafe in the background.

Quite a few people can be seen watching some activity out on the water.

What had once been a 40-acre lake and swamp by the mid-1920s the Mere and its man-made islands were transformed into a beautiful public amenity.
