29. The air defence of Teesside was evidently in the hands of gun batteries like this during the Great War. This particular gun operated in the Eston area in the years 1915 to 1919. The size of the shells used can be seen from the examples in the foreground.

30. An Eston postcard view brings back memories of a bygone age about 1910, with a pump serving the loeal eommunity on the right. A lady is doing her clothes washing in the wood en barrel by the sta ne cottages in Church Lane.

31. An interior view of the Eston Hospital, about 1905. The ceiling lights and medicine trolley are interesting features, and the nurses look elegant in period uniform. Built in 1884 as an Ironstone Miners Hospital, the building served the Eston area until198Ü, and was dernolished in 1981.

32. A rare view of Eston Station, with an interesting group of passengers and station staft along the platform. Behind North Eastern Railway engine No. 1319 or 1919 - difficult to read - stands the Parish Church. Taken about 1908.

33. Ironstone waggons stand at the foot of the New Bank railway in cline at Eston, which served one of the important areas of the Eston ironstone mines. The steepest of the three inclines on these hillsides, its outline can still just be seen when tra velling along the Parkway. The Eston mines closed in 1949, but this postcard dates from about 1925.

34. An unusual postcard view of the south end of Stockton High Street, because it shows some of the shops on the east si de of the High Street, all of them demolished as part of an 'improvernent' scheme about 1970. The tallest in the foreground is the Royal Hotel, with the cab drivers' rest kiosk out in the road opposite. Taken about 1912.

35. Another interesting Stockton High St reet postcard taken on Market Day, looking northwards to the Parish Church. Open topped trams and a very elegant lamp standard add interest to a scene dating from about 1910.

36. A very rare Armstrong postcard of a busy Stockton Quayside in 1908. A sm all locomotive operates along an elaborate railway network serving the quayside area. Two large vessels are moored on the Tees, and eranes stand by to load cargo boats. A rake of rail waggons appears to carry coal.




37. A very smart raad sweeping vehicle built in Leeds during the 1920's for the Borough of Stockton on Tees Highways Department. Does anyone remember seeing vehicles like these sweeping the streets of Stockton ?

38. An interior view of the Royal Rink - a roller skating rink - in Yarm Lane, Stockton, about 1909. Such establishments were very popular. The hanging paper lanterns and many f1ags on the wall possibly suggest the card was produced for the opening of the premises.
