9. A special occasion in Middlesbrough when the Town Hall on the right was heavily de corated. Could it have been the Coronation of George VI on 12th May 1937? Hinton's shop and café can be seen just beyond the Town Hall, and the large Corporation Hotel building is on the extreme left.

10. Taken in Albert Road, by the Town Hall, when Middlesbrough celebrated Peace Day on 19th July 1919. Two soldiers with fixed bayonets stand before the special decorated platform. A number of the civic dignitaries have assembied for the occasion.

11. A quite magnificent early view, taken outside Middlesbrough Town Hall, of one of the first pair of motorised fire engines, decorated for a special occasion. The two Merryweather engines took up their duties in October 1911. Note the solid tyres. The two engines were named 'Sir Samuel Sadler' and 'Lady Sadler'.

12. A military occasion in Russell Street, behind Middlesbrough Town Hall, with the soldiers not keeping in step, and a civilian brass band marching behind the police horses. The civic dignitaries stand by the steps of the Town Hall, facing Victoria Park. Possibly part of the Peace Celebrations at the end of the Great War, in 1919.

13. A postcard from about 1920 of Albert Road, with the various vehicles in the distance deserving study with a magnifying glass. The tramlines turn into Grange Road in the foreground. The old properties on the left were demolished many years ago, to be replaced by a modern shopping centre.

14. A most impressive display at Goldsbrough's English Meat, Game and Poultry Ernporium at No. 65, Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough, about 1905. How many of the townsfolk could afford to shop here? It must have been dark inside the shop!

15. A very fine Haig Parry view of the Newport Bridge, taken just after it opened in 1934, and with the Newport Iron Works on the Middlesbrough bank neatly framed by the bridge structure.

16. Has anyone heard before of the Middlesbrough Primitive Harriers? Taken in 1908, they were evidently a local cross country running team.

17. An atmospheric view of the Bessemer Shop at the North East Steel Works in Middlesbrough. There is a brooding sense of heavy industry, but wh at is the policeman doing standing on the right? Taken about 1910.

18. The band of the 1st North Riding of Yorkshire Royal Garrison Artillery, which was a Heavy Artillery Volunteer unit. Their headquarters was in the Drill Hall, Grange Road West, Middlesbrough, and the Commanding Officer in 1905 was Lt. Col. P. Williams.
