Arcadia @ Portrush

I took this image one November while walking with the family. The sea front on the North Coast is a very different place out of season. Although this part of the world is beautiful in the Summer, there’s something about a stormy sea and the waves crashing on the rocks that I enjoy more.

The Arcadia Cafe can be found on the East Strand of Portrush, Co. Antrim. Built in the 20’s it was a thriving business during the summer. A ballroom was built in 1953 and for years hosted some of the best showbands in the country and later, in 1978, the Undertones played at the Arcadia supporting the Stranglers.
