21. Brougham Street, Hartlepool, viewed about 1905. A familiar view little changed until quite recently, the houses and Primitive Methodist Chapel (1851) on the right have been demolished and St. Mary's Church erected in 1851 is now without its spire. St. Mary's was designed by Joseph Aloysius Hansom, one of the most prominent architects of Roman Catholic churches of the period and also the inventor of the celebrated 'Patent Safety Cab', better known as the Hansom! To the left of St. Hilda's Church is the recently demolished St. Hilda's Hall which was originally built in 1865 as the Mechanics' Institute.

22. Hartlepooi Fish Quay, Victoria Doek, The steam trawler, 'Tantallon' photographed about 1897, belonged to J.T. Graham and is said to be the first steam trawler to enter Hartlepool.

23. Fishing is probably the longest established industry in HartlepooI. An extensive business was carried on by steam trawlers, steam liners, drifters and fishing cobles. The fish quay photographed had a frontage of 1,000 feet and a width of 80 feet, Adjoining it was the ice factory and a large cold store along with fish curing houses. Fish was supplied to all parts of the country by the excellent rail facilities available. In season the local trade was much augmented by the landing of the herring catch to be piekled and often sold abroad. The scene here is of the fish quay around 1910, the present fish quay is on the Southgate side of the Victoria Doek and the ice factory and cold store, the last remnants of this scene, were demolished in 1984.

24. The Fish Sands, Hartlepool's most secluded beaeh, viewed from the Pilot Pier. A fine view of fishing eobles beaehed in front of the 14th century Sandwell Gate, the Town Wall is draped with fishing nets hanging to dry. The buildings in the centre block still exist - those to the extreme left and those to the eentre right known as the Croft were demolished in the 1930s.

25. Hartlepooi Town Wall. The area behind, better known as the Croft, was an overcrowded, insanitary part of Hartlepooi, demolished in the 1930s, but still remembered by the older residents with much affection. The Sandwell Gate and the Town Wall erected as part of the tewn's defences in the 14th century, still exist and are protected as Ancient Monuments. The foundations of the water tank (centre) ean still be seen at low tide. The building on the foreshore is the Fisherman's Arms - many a high tide left the bar in several feet of water!

26. A view of the Fish Sands at low tide. A mixture of fishing craft can be seen. HL 33 Sunbeam is an example of the loeal fishing coble showing the deep forefoot and raking stern whilst others are double-ended mules built in the Yorkshire tradition. Their considerable size ean be gauged by comparison with the figures in the middle distance, HL 33 is complete with mast, oars and rudder all stowed inboard ready for her next trip. The foundations on the right are the remnants of the 'Fisherman's Arrns' public house.

27. A view along the Town Wall showing the steps over the Sandwell Gate. This view shows the tenernent-like Cambridge Buildings built right onto the edge of the Fish Sands. Cobles were still moored in this part of the outer harbour even though the Fish Quay, built by the Doek and Harbour Cornpany, had replaced the traditional fish market on the sands themselves,

28. The fishing mule, Mathewand Ellen, owned by Will Allen, on the Fish Sands next to the Old Pier, HartlepooI. The Cambridge family were noted as the finest coble builders on the north-east coast. Their workshop was near the slip in the background. When the last member of the Cambridge family retired before 1920 the 'mantle' for quality coble building fell on Harrisons of Amble in Northumberland. The quality of the Cambridge craft was such that at least three are still known to exist in 1985!
