Never mind the seaside rock.......

....because in 1896 you could smell like the sea round here. But around the same time there were letters to the self-same newspaper where this advert appeared (Whitley Seaside Chronicle and Visitors Gazette....a riveting really!) about the disgusting, presumed drain/sewer-related aromas that pervaded the town when the wind was in the wrong direction. Image quality not the best, someone was hogging the decent microfilm reader.
