In 2009, Felixstowe's Spa Pavilion celebrated its 100th birthday with two variety concerts featuring 10 local drama companies.
A natural spring exists flowing out of the Felixstowe cliffs. In the 19th century the plan was to turn the town into a spa/health resort. This kiosk selling spring water was about as far as it got.
A view of the spring water kiosk, the beach huts and prom in 1901 on the site of the theatre. Note that the pier hadn't been built yet either.
In the early 1900s a bandstand was built on the prom, and in 1907 a sturdier wrought iron version was erected. Around 400 seats could be set out around it.
Another view of the bandstand in 1907 - and the pier which was built around the same time.
On 25 June 1909, the Floral Hall was opened by Lord Claude Hamilton who was the chairman of the Great Eastern Railway Company. It incorporated the bandstand in its design.
When facial hair ruled the world. The hall could hold around 700 people and cost £7,000 to build. The sides could be opened so that people on the promenade could hear performances.
Taking tea on the terrace. The terrace was later enclosed by the modern glass-fronted bar area.
Snow on the prom - year unknown. All the black and white photographs are from the Spa Pavilion's archives.
The Spa's Julie Howes shows us the spring waters which still trickle down the cliff at the back of the theatre.
