29. A beach scene and these entertainers have certainly gathered a good crowd to wateh their performance. The bathing hut on the right has an advert painted on the side which reads: 'A live paper for women Mrs. Bull, Tuesdays Id.' On the Ieft are three more bathing huts actually in the water, but there is not a naked body in sight!

30. The west door of Whitby Abbey makes a most impressive 'picture frame' for the view beyond.

31. The Ghaut, one of many of these very narrow litt1e streets which provides the visitor with a surprise view of the harbour. Originally all these old properties wou1d have been occupied by old fisher families.

32. Caedmon's Cross looking over the harbour to the hotels on the West Cliff. Today many of these are now converted into self catering holiday flats to meet the style of today's holiday makers.

33. The dis aster that took place about the turn of the century at Beggar's Bridge, Glaisdale. This covered waggon was being pulled by two horses; something frightened the first horse and it jumped over the bridge taking the second horse with it. This dramatic picture shows the second horse still hanging, strangled by its own harness. The first horse has been cut down and is dead in the stream below.

34. Just putting the finishing touches to Whitby school 1912. The workmen are rolling the tarmac paths by hand. The narrow guage railway line in the foreground was used to carry bricks. The school has on1y had three headmasters in all these years.
