PD/2 Photographs, Demolition Of Torquay Hotel, 1970s

Torquay is often referred to as the 'Queen of the Riviera'. For centuries a popular destination for coastal holidays, Torquay was the birthplace and home of internationally- renowned crime writer Agatha Christie, and is steeped in history, from the awe-inspiring caves of Kents Cavern, to the World War II slipways at Beacon Quay.

This collection of photographers were deposited by the son of one Mr Kelly who worked on the demolition of the Hotel in the 1970s and who is featured in many of the images.
