59. The crowd disperses after the parade and service.

60. A Whitsun parade led by the vicar and church choir outside St. Mary's Church.

61. This picture shows the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry parading through Tenby sometime between the Boer War and the First World War. The Yeomanry have marched up Greenhill Road and have turned into White Lion Street. The shop on the corner is now the Busy Bee café. The Pembrokeshire Yeomanry was formed at the end of the eighteenth century and saw active service in the Boer War and mounted infantry mainly as infantry in the First World War and as artillery in the Second World War.

62. Before the coming of the railway and the building of the embankment which carried the railway, the sea came in daily covering the marshes, while the sand on the seaward side accumulated and formed the sand dunes, between these and the railway is now Tenby Golf Course.

63. The Hunt Week was by this time an old established annual institution, the various events which make up its programme having been held with probably only one or two omissions for thirty years or more. This card shows the meet in Tudor Square.

64. Another Mortimer Allen card of Tenby Hunt showing Mr. Seymour Allen ofCresselly House with his pack of fox hounds. Mr. Allen's hounds met during the January hunt week when theatricals, fancy dress and hunt balls drew representatives of the county families of West Wales and many other visitors to the resort.

65. Mortimer Allen card showing Tenby Hunt which frequently met in the vicinity and twice during the season within the town itself - usually in January or February, just before the famous race meeting is held.

66. MI. Seymour Allen and rus hounds would arrive in Tudor Square. There was a large gathering of spectators.

67. The Tudor Merchant's House. In Bridge Street stands an ancient house with a gabled front, an interesting survivor of the days of Tenby's importance as a port in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The house was made over to the National Trust in 1938 and has been preserved as an ancient building.

68. St. Julian's Chapel. A small chapel devoted specia1ly to the needs of the seafaring population. It stands in the harbour litera1ly at the waters edge. In conneetion with the chapel were the Seaman's Rooms where non-intoxicating drinks were sold and a reading room supplied with newspaper and books was maintained for the benefit of the fishermen. The original chapel of St. Julians stood on the old pier.
