69. An important record from 1908, when the Kilton or Loftus Viaduct was buried in shale to support the fabric against subsidence due to the local ironstone mining. It was essential to provide proper drainage under the viaduct before tipping the shale, and this postcard shows the operation in progress. The postcard writer refers to 'a wild beast show at Loftus tonight' - 2nd May 1908.

70. A serious-Iooking Skinningrove Male Voice Choir, taken about 1910. Many of these men would have worked either in the ironstone mine or at the Iron Works. Several of them are wearing gold watch chains, so it was probably a concert day for the choir.

71. An ironstone miners' band marching through Skinningrove behind the banner of the Skinningrove Friendship Lodge No. 8 on some special occasion about 1908. The building on the left is that of the Skinningrove Amicable Cooperative Industrial Society Limited, whieh today still stands opposite the loeal War Memorial.

72. The staff of the Loftus Cooperative Society pose by an impressive window display of jams, teas and candles. Was the horse on the left part oftheir delivery service? Taken about 1908.

73. A very rare and exciting postcard view from Loftus in 1909. A 'Vetes for Women' suffragette rallyoutside what was then the National Provincial Bank building, being addressed by Miss Adela Pankhurst. Curiously, the audience seems to be dominated by men!

74. A football team representing Liverton Mines and involved in a charity match about 1910. The individual outfits deserve some study! The managers were Messrs. Gare and Varty, and the players included: J. Robinson, J. Arrowsmith, A. Gray, J. Pearson, C. Stalker, D. Hugill, C. Plummer, ? Haxby, G. Winspear, C. Breckon and A. Wisbey.

75. A wonderfui evocation ofthe Lingdale ironstone mining community in 1905. The Post Office, shown at the corner of Springfield and Tyreman Street, was owned by the Cook family. All the buildings on the right of the street have now gone, and only the modern Lingdale Working Men's Club can be seen there today.

76. An impressive record of a happy excursion from Staithes about 1910. Two horse-drawn waggons have reached the top of the bank, near to the oid railway station, and are heading off into the countryside. The terrace cottages at Cowbar ean be seen in the background.

77. Described in the caption as 'Club Walk at Staithes', this postcard shows more traditional Staithes' bonnets than you will ever see again. Some of the men are wearing sashes and insignia, and this view from about 1905 may capture an event of the local branch of one of the Friendly Societies, which were so prevalent and influential in those days.

78. A splendid Henry Charles Morley postcard, fuIl of character, of an old Staithes' fisherman. He wears the traditional jersey and sou'wester. Taken about 1908.
