49. Alderman J.e. Eyles, Mayor of Richmond, is waiting to welcome the visiting cycIists to Richmond Meet, outside the King's Head Hotel.

50. These bewigged gentlemen and their companions were from the North Yorks and South Durham Cyclists club. They are dressed to appear in a sketch at the Whitsuntide concert in the cast Ie grounds in 1922.

51. More performers at the Whitsuntide concert. This photo was taken in the castle grounds in front of the Married Quarters.

52. Another group ready to perform at the Cyclists Meet.

53. Again, 1922. This doughty trio are about to give excerpts tram The Gondoliers by Gilbert & Sullivan to an eager Whitsuntide Monday audience.

54. This group photographed in front of the castle keep (what is that funny little lean-to") are The Tykes. They are presenting Leisure Moments in a Fire Station.

55. Plenty of snow in front of Grey Friars Tower. The Grey Friars were founded in 1210 by St. Francis of Assisi. Their three vows were to live in chastity, poverty and obedience. They were forbidden possessions of any kind and yet became a wealthy order. They arrived in Richmond in the 13th century, barefooted and in the roughest robes imaginable. Their church at Richmond was founded by Ranulph Fitz- Ranulph in 1258.

56. The remains of the Castle Paper Mill are seen left of centre in th is view. The other buildings are connected with the Gas Works. Aesthetics can't have been taken into account in the euphoria of making gas.

57. Richmond Parish Church showing the galleries which we re removed in 1920. At the time of this photograph there is no Green Howards Chapel.

58. Temple Lodge, one of the most prestigious houses in Richmond. In 1948 the Town Council wanted to acquire the Temple Lodge Estate for public purposes. This was not achieved. The house was a hotel round about that time. Built in the Gothic style of architecture in 1769 as accommodation for the household servants of John Yorke, Temple Lodge commands a magnificent view up the Swale valley. The grounds are extensive - an area of natural, unspoilt beauty.
