The Marine Parade runs behind the beach and is crowded with tourists. All of them are wearing much more formal clothing than modern tourists would. The first building on the left is number 17. This was the town's sea baths and was built in 1759. These were small, individual, baths filled with water pumped from the sea rather than a swimming pool. The trams ran between the two piers and into the town. The first tram in Yarmouth ran in 1902.
