109. A charming schoolyard view of the boys of the Holy Trinity School in Yarm Lane, Stockton, taken about 1900. No discipline problems here, and they all look quite smart, in spite of the poverty which no doubt existed in the neighbourhood.

110. An unusual team photograph ofthe Stockton Forge 'Married Team' in 1913. An extraordinary way of selecting a football team! The players were G.W. Hardwiek (Captain), W. Gil!, A. Robson, S. Wood, F. Gaston, F. Pickard, W. Fletcher, A.F. Wright, T. Robinson, T. Alderson and G. Lodge.

111. A special delivery from the Stockton Corporation Gas Works. A deeorated horse draws a cart which carries three of their produets - a gas oven, a fire or heater, and a pair of gas lamps. Taken about 1910, there must have been an event taking plaee at whieh this display made a most useful advertisement.

GEO. HILDRETH, uperintendent.

Pollee O'fïce, toekton-on- Tees. 5th January, 1905.

112. A most interesting police postcard from 1905. The card was issued on the day after the robbery, so Superintendent Hildreth wasted na time in alerting the public to what was clearly a major robbery in value terms for those days. The card was printed by John Harrisans, sa it may have been this firm who had suffered the loss, Did they ever catch Frederick Price, I wonder?

113. A fascinating advertising postcard for Holt's West End Toilet Saloon in Yarm Lane, Stockton, from about 1910. Note the shaving mugs on the left, and the aspidistras. A picture of Mr. Arthur Holt appears on the back ofthe postcard, with a printed message: 'I have re-fitted my Saloon with the latest antiseptic improvements, and with a view to personal comfort, and solicit a continuanee of your patronage.'

114. A splendidly evocative view ofYarm Fair, on the High Street in 1909. What a differen ce - and not for the better - the motor car has now made to this impressive market place. A magnifying glass brings out a great deal of detail in this postcard.

115. A peaceful scene from about 1905 outside the Black Bull Hotel at the south end of Yarm High Street, with St. Mary's Roman Catholic church in the distance on the right. Pony traps await the emergence of their passengers from the hotel.

116. Loading 'Pion eer' cement on to delivery lorries at the ICI Casebourne Works' Cement Plant at Billingham in the 1930's. A works' locomotive can be seen on the extreme right. The plant was important in the growth of the Billingham factory, but its closure in the early 1970's greatly assisted in the improvement of the local environment.

117. A fascinating glimpse of the old Rail Waggon Repair Shop at ICI Billingham in the 1930's. Wooden waggons are having major repairs effected. Many of these support services employed large numbers of people.

118. The first tram to operate for the Hartlepoois Electric Tramway Company, in 1896. It was obviously wise to try to get a downst airs seat in winter!
