c , Hey: Janet. Donkeys."-Redcar Sands.

89. A charming Heavisides postcard with young children absorbed by the pleasures of a donkey ride on the sands at Redcar. Taken in 1910, the youngest child sits firmly in a basket seat on her donkey.

90, A First World War tank being towed by two steam traction engines along the sea front at Redcar in the 1920's, to a site near Zetland Park. In 1940 the tank was dismantled for scrap to assist with the war efforts th en prevailing.

91. A lifeboat scene at Redcar, but on this occasion the baat is the 'Burton on Trent', donated by the Burton on Trent Lifeboat Fund, which was strongly supported by Worthington's Brewery. The postcard is date-stamped 1909, but the lifeboat served Redcar in the period 1867 to 1884, was launched on 15 occasions, and saved 65 lives. From the number of barrels and industrial buildings in the background, the photograph would appear to have been taken in the brewery yard.

92. The Territorial Army held big summer camps for their soldiers in the Redcar area before the Great War. This scene in the High Street reflects much local enthusiasm for the occasion in the summer of 1908 when, no doubt, a parade and march past were part of the ceremonial.

93. A composite postcard from the same year, indicating that General French visited the Territorial Camp outside the town, and illustrating the importance of the occasion. Similar camps we re held in the vicinity of Guisborough.

94. A year later, in 1909, the soldiers return to Redcar. This unusual postcard view shows them arriving at the railway station and forming up into ranks in order to march out to the camp.

95. More Territorial soldiers arriving at Marske Station in 1909. Horse-drawn waggons wait to take some of them to camp. Those in the centre carry rifles and push their bicycles, whilst a band can just be seen behind them. Another group follows on in the distance, to the left. There is obvious public interest in the occasion.

96. An aeroplane disaster captured for a postcard at 'Marske-by-Sea' on 24 December, probably in 1914. The fate of the pilot is not known, but the state of the wreckage is certainly making an impression upon the onlookers.

97. Taken in 1889 at New Marske, this rural scene is believed to show the Hare family. Mr. Hare was alocal butcher. A family of six children was by no means uncommon for the period.

98. A view of the ironstone mine buildings and the complex railway system at New Marske in 1888. The Upleatham Ironstone Mine was owned by Pease and Partners Ltd., and the mine manager at this date was Christopher Heslop.
