9. The most commanding aspect of Richmond Castle.

10. Deep snow in 1906. Bleakness everywhere. The cross looks forlorn without its top-piece, removed in 1905.

11. To the relief of the townsfolk, the balI is being replaced at the top of the Market Cross.

12. A picture of th at same event in 1907. The Market PI ace has always been a busy place. Criminals were beaten in public by the Market Cross, there were stocks by the Cross, a pillory and a large boulder with a ring let into it for use in bull-baiting. There was also a maypole and three other crosses where barley, wheat and oat crops were sold.

13. Side Shows are being erected. A road now traverses the cobbled market place and looking at this card, it's soon going to be horseless carriages for all! An amazing variety of travelling amusements came in the days before cinema, such as switch backs and wild beast shows. In Trinity Church Tower would be rung the passing bell, the number of tolls of the bell indicating the death of man, woman or child. Then the dead person's name would be posted outside the church to be re ad by the townsfolk.

14. Fraquet's Tobacconist business moved to King Street and Lipten's the grocers took these pre mises in Trinity Square. The big glass window on the second floor above Riley's Bazaarwas Ingham Riley's photography studio.

15. Empire Day: a great day all over the country. In Richmond, children wearing their best clothes would gather together and listen to speeches, th en after saluting the flag would be taken to the Market Hall for a slap-up tea.

16. Spectators at the sports in the Cricket Field about 1914. Hats are de rigueur for bath men and wamen.

17. The morning after a spectacular fire at Bainbridge's tailors and outfitters in Trinity Square. Sir Robert Baden Powell who was staying at the Kings Head raised the alarm at one a.m. Bales of cloth etc. we re handed down from upstairs windows and taken to CastIe Hili where they were stored until the shop was rebuilt. School boys loved a fire and were invariably caned for being late for school on the morning after one. They found it hard to tear themselves away from the action.

18. Bainbridge's shop, risen from the ashes.
