Old Picture of Skegness 1826

A view of Skegness reproduced from an engraving created in 1826. The image shows Skegness as little more than a mound on the beach.

Notice the bathing machines, the little boats on the sea and the sign-post.

Everyone would be interested to know the whereabouts of this little mound relative to the present-day Skegness,  but as yet, I haven’t found the answer.
