Lots of people, mostly from Torquay accuse the place of living on past glories. Could be true I suppose. Anyway some one kindly sent me the photos posted here of Hotels in Torquay taken from the 1922 Bradshaw Railway Guide. Back then Bradshaw was where you went, not Google, if you needed rail times or information about your destination. I can still remember from my youth rail time tables being referred to as Bradshaw's.
So here are some of Torquay's past glories.
