Bath Cottages Wherrytown

Bath Cottages in WherryTown Newlyn c1930
@Harvey69

The photographer is standing on the far Western end of the prom, back to the sea / railing, pretty much directly opposite the Beachfield Hotel / Tides Restaurant, but facing halfway towards Newlyn.

You can get a better idea from the third photo I posted on page 1 of this thread, as it shows both the Baths and the Beachfield Hotel.

I believe that the description is wrong, as it wasn't the Café Marina at the time it was taken, only becoming so when the wooden structure (shown in the 5th picture I posted on pg. 1) was added on.

Yes... boarded up does seem to be a theme around there. :D

The modern-day solution to serving the refreshment needs of promenaders? This:

Two more... these from cornishmemory.com:


1870 - Beachfield and Gwyll's Row in the top right.

c.1920 - Bedford Bolitho Gardens. Top right is the top of Bodilly's Mill (just prior to demolition?) poking out above the shelter, with Alexandra Terrace to the left of that. Today, this is the skate park.
 
@Hedge Slammer I seem to remember in the early 60s that there was a building that had serpentine goods and Treeve said that it was so. This building extension with its serpentine goods could be the one, still there in the 1960s!
 
And some posted here a while ago by @treeve that show what happened to Bedford Bolitho Gardens, on Ash Wednesday 1962:

This hole must be where Caldwell's Baths (later Café Marina) once stood:
