Here's Yorkshire's coastal resorts as you've never seen them before, in this beautiful gallery of images from 1890.

The pictures of popular seaside spots including Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby show a simpler time, with a lot of the landscape yet untouched by development.

Yorkshire's beautiful mountains and waterfalls have also been captured - and you'll be surprised to learn where these snaps came from.

The pictures are not from a UK archive - for their source, you have to look across the pond.

They are stored by the USA's Library of Congress, America's oldest federal cultural institution.

It is the research arm of the US Congress and also the largest library in the world, holding millions of books, recordings, photographs, maps and manuscripts.

These stunning century old pictures are part of the library's Views of England Photochrom print collection.

Photochrom is a process whereby colour images are produced from black and white photographic negatives, using lithographic printing plates.

The process has allowed these black and white images to be brought to life through colour, offering a snapshot of life on the Yorkshire coast in 1890.
