As identified in the comment from cousin Chris, this is from Whitby – confirmed by searching for the “Duke of York” pub (just below the church – the sign is readable on the high-res version), which is still there.

    Mum suggests the photo may have been taken in the mid-50s, while John was doing his National Service.
