99. A charming view of the schoolchildren at Upleatham, near Marske, in 1909. UnusualIy for this period, there are even a few smiles for the photographer. A wide range of ages can be seen, from pram to teenage.

100. Racing cars on the beach between Marske and Saltburn in the 1920's. The car in the right foreground is 'Kim II', built in 1921 by and for Frazer Nash, then part of the Godfrey and Nash Company. Less than 350 ears of this model we re produced. Extremely fast, it had a 1,100ee engine and was really a motor cycle on four wheels, using chain drive and a light body construction.

101. A fashion parade on the be ach at Saltburn, taken about 1910. A magnifying glass shows up some wonderful detail - bathing machines on the beach in the distance, and a fascinating array ofladies and childrens 'Sunday best' clothes.

102. Yet another occasion when the stone bridge at Saltburn had fallen victim to rough seas. Taken in 1907 the postcard shows a number of workmen beginning to clear up the debris. They are shovelling the road surfacing material from the bridge framework.

103. Edwardian elegance captured on the sea front at Saltburn, on the occasion of the August Bank Holiday Children's Sand Service in 1907. According to the message on the back of the postcard, three young men ran a service each day over the holiday period. Perhaps two of them can be seen on the right of the picture?

104. An exciting find in the postcard world - an early scene on Saltburn Golf Course. Posted to a lady in Berlin in 1908, it shows some early examples of clothing and equipment which certainly reeall a bygone age. The elegant lady spectators seem a little toa close to the action.

105. A spectacular incident on the railway zig zag at Skinningrove, serving the ironstone mine. The gradient up to the Loftus railway viaduct was severe, and accidents sometimes occurred! Taken about 1910, the picture suggests that a considerable amount of recovery work would be involved on this occasion.

106. A charming seaside moment captured by the camera at Skinningrove, about 1910. The young girl carries a real bucket and spade - none of the modern plastic variety here! The small boy clutches his model yacht, and a fisherman's boat proves to be a convenient setting for the photographer.

107. The occasion of the laying of a number of named foundation stones at the re built Congregational Church and School at Loftus, which took place on 18 April 1906. Several people in the crowd carry band instruments, and a number of the smaller boys have climbed on to the building. A board on the scaffold pole tells us th at the builder was a Mr. Palframan of Whitby.

108. The station staff pose for the camera at Loftus Station, about 1908. Good railway station postcards of this period are now hard to find. The early railways in East Cleveland obviously played a major part, not only in carrying the ironstone traffic, but also in providing access to town and country for the people.
