71. A pair of advertisements which cast some light on private education facilities in midVictorian days, wh en most was provided by governesses and private tutors. The scale of terms and the subjects contained in the curricullum make interesting reading. The first National Schools were built in Coptfold Road in 1869; these followed some earlier schools in various premises.

DüNE IN THE BEST MA..'1NER.

72. A pair of quaintly illustrated advertisements of trades th at have now virtually vanished: almost all goods are now sold under the makers brand names, be it soap or paint, which was then ground and mixed by the vendor to the customers needs. Almost everything made by the cooper has been superseded by plastic ware, though for a time enamelled iron utensils held sway. The pictures would be provided by the local printer and were no doubt the best he could select from his stock blocks to cover most trades.

73. An advertisement from the 1860's in which the illustrations appear today as something akin to fancy dress: these were supplied to the newIy forming Rifle Volunteers of which the 1st Battalion (Essex Regt) was based in the town. The local 'F' Company was enrolled in 1859 using the oid Drill Hall near the town end of Ongar Road. In 1905 it had a strength of 95 volunteers, but was soon after superceded by the Territorial Army as part of Lord Haldanes reforms.

74. A group of interesting announcements, especially that of Mr. Frostick in poetic vein who also indicates the lack of any firefighting arrangements at that date. RumbalI's business was continued until about 1918 on the corner of Waterloo Road. The Ongar coach ceased in the 1880's when themail was transferred to go by rail having been worked by Mr. West for about fifty years, after which a mail-gig ran to and from Kelvedon Hatch in charge of 'Ginger Deeds' who will be remembered still by older readers.

Right: A page from the Essex Almanac of 1905: John Emery also owned the steam mill in Queens Road of which no illustration has yet been discovered, it stood opposite the foot of the old Police Station HilI (now the library), it was powered by a beam engine. The Winters' business was continued for a short time by Davis of Romford until Churchill Johnson Ltd. took over, later moving to premises in High Street.

76. A photograph of a little 4 horse power Benz reputed to be the first horseless carriage to be owned in the town pictured outside the rather fine entrance to Middleton Hall to provide a suitable background for its obviously proud owner a local dental surgeon. It was first owned by a resident of Chelmsford; its registration plate was issued in December 1903 when that became a legal requirement, but the vehicle is of earlier vintage than indicated by the number, probably built in 1900 or 1901.
