17. Law's Grocers in 1891 was situated between the Cottage Hospital ('Vine House') and the 'Masons Arrns' - the site now occupied by the offices of an estate agent and accountants. The proprietor John Law is in the main doorway to the right and it looks as if he presided over a prosperous business.

It was soon replaced by a horse drawn Merryweather Steamer Engine which by 1899 had an amateur but well trained crew under the Captain, Dr. Tweedy. '1736' pictured here outside its Engine House down 'Tickle Toby' yard had done its best for over one hundred and fifty years and 110W was the 'butt' of jokes. The last of these was from a Town Councillor who said if it was advertised far sale only the British Museum would bid for it!

TheJubilee Day was sopopular that the 'Darlington and Stock ton Times' stated 'Altogether the day was the most rnernorable day of general enjoyrnent that has been known in Northallerton.' The town was gaily decorated, and the Volunteer Band and the Boys Own Drum and Fife Band led the procession representing all the societies, groups and sports. Highlights of the day we re tea for all at the Town HaU on 61 trestie tables by continuous sittings ending with the 'tramps' and the beacon fire and fireworks up Bullamoor where seventeen cartloads of wood were led for the bonfire. the ignition of which was watched by hundreds who had trecked 10 sec this.
