49. A view of Prospect Terrace, Ca!ifornia, Eston. The Eston Mines' manager and the Mines' doctor lived here. The Primitive Methodist Chape! on the right - built in 1857 - was the first p!ace of worship to be constructed in Eston after the mining began.

50. A postcard view of West Street in Eston, showing the typical terrace housing at the turn of the century. The Eston Hills can be seen in the background, but the cartload of hay looks a bit out of place here!

51. Windows piled high with provisions, including Brooke Bond tea, this grocer's shop was situated in Guisborough Street, Eston. Now demolished, James Buxton's shop is seen here about 1908.

52. Everybody is looking straight at the camera as the Eston United Football Club members pose in 1905/06. Many of these players probably worked in the local ironstone mines.

53. A fine view of some of Lazenby's housewives, posing by the village pump about 1905, with several other residents and dogs getting in on the act! The Half Moon Inn can be seen in the background on the left of the postcard.

54. A postcard view of Lazenby, with the Nags Head Hotel ('good accommodation for cyclists'), on the right, and Queen Street in the centre. A little child barely old enough to stand can be seen on the left. Taken about 1905.

55. A rare postcard view of the Mission Church of St. Andrewat Warrenby, built in 1883 and illustrating that a significant community had grown up around the local ironworks. The church - somewhat surprisingly - contained val ua bIe stained glass windows by Sir Edward Burne-Jones. With the village of Warrenby being demolished about 1974, the church suffered the same fate shortly afterwards. The valuable windows were sold in London.

56. Another of the Redcar street scene postcards recording the presence of the Territorial Army at camp in the district. Taken ab out 1908, it is weH worth looking at the detail through a magnifying glass.

57. There are many early views of the Pier at Redear, but usually of the entranee gates. This posteard, probably dating from about 1930, gives a particularly good idea of the length and nature of the pier in its heyday. A gentleman ean be seen going out to sea in an invalid earriage! The water is ealm, and the photographer has had a day for good visibility.

58. Illustrating the popularity of the children's beach services on the Yorkshire coast during the summer in the early part of the century, this postcard from 1911 records a big crowd at Redcar on the seafront, with Newcomen Terrace in the background. The Reverend Powers sits in front, next to an assortment of tennis racquets and ropes.
