49. A spectacular and horrific scene recorded on a postcard, following a fire at the Cerebos salt factory at Greatham in January 1912. The fire began in a heated salt pan, and destroyed the packing department and some of the pans used to evaporate brine. Little more than the shell of the factory buildings remains. Two men stand glumly surveying the damage. The Cerebos Company of Newcastle purchased the Greatham Salt and Brine Works in 1906. Salt production ceased at Greatham in 1970.

50. Postcard views of the December 1914 bombardment of the Hartlepoois from the sea by German cruisers are still fairly commonplace, but this damage to houses in Cleveland Road appears on a rare card by Alfred Price which also shows a lot of sm all children surveying the scene.

51. A most interesting High Street scene, showing the Market in Hartlepaal and a small fair in the distance. This postcard was sent in 1906, and shows the drapers shop of E. Swan Pin der on the extreme left. St. Hilda's Church stands in the distance.

52. A magnificent steam lorry with iron wheels. Wisps of smoke can be seen rising from the chimney of the mechanised brewers dray, belonging to J.W. Cameron's Lion Brewery at West HartlepooI. The draymen pose on this spectacular early postcard, dating from ab out 1908.

53. An interesting 1907 postcard from Hartlepool, when the water supply was cut off for the day on 14 April - presumably to carry out repair work - and water carts provided supplies in the street. Ladies carry their jugs, and the gentlemen on the cart in the centre appear to be filling them.

54. A view of Yarm Station, looking south along the line which is supported by the spectacular viaduct, opened in 1852. This postcard, by Stevens of Thirsk, dates from 1912. The station has not been used for passengers since February 1960, and was closed for the handling of goods traffic in 1964.

55. Probably taken on the same day in 1912, but looking north towards Eaglescliffe. A young girl in pinafore dress awaits the train. The bridge in the foreground carries the road to Aislaby village, which lies away to the left.

56. The railway staff at Yarm Station, some of them sitting on the porter's barrows. This view was taken early in 1914, and illustrates the manpower levels employed at that time at local stations.

57. A magnificent Yarm Fair postcard dating from 1908 - tbe details are weil wortb tbe use of a magnifying glass. A number of gipsy caravans can be seen in tbe rear centre, and tbe fairground waggon proclaims 'Relpb and Pedley's Electric Automobiles' presumably an earlyversion oftbe 'Dodgem Cars'?

58. A Brittain and Wright postcard of the blacksmith's shop in Crathome village, taken in 1907. Like many other smithies in our rural villages, this has now been converted into a desirabie residence. The children look with curiosity at the photographer.
