Awaiting the return oJ the Boats, near Stalthes.

39. These fisherfolk are awaiting the return of the boats near Staithes so that they can set about unloading and preparing the catch for market.

40. The message on the back reads a young man who is in business for himself. He would go round the streets selling milk: from the cans carried by the donkey. The period: during the First Wor1d War.


41. Frank Gomez and the Municipal Orchestra which played at Whitby in 1924. Note the one lady.

42. No history of Whitby would be complete without mention of the annual regatta. This card showing the finish of the lifeboat race goes back to about 1910. Yet the regatta is just as popular today seventy-five years on!

43. Ruswarp Mill, which was gutted by fire on September 25th, 1911. It is an odd coincidence that that was also the year that Amotherby Mill near Malton was bumt down. The comments on the reverse was that when they went to see it the following morning it was still burning.

44. The foundation stone laying ceremony of St. Oswald's Church Lyth, September 29th, 1910.

45. The crowds streaming out of St. Mary's Church in their Sunday best. It must have been extremely hot as most of them have parasols up and the young men are in straw boaters.

46. The planting of the penny hedge in 1906. This was an annua1 event and the test was to see if it cou1d withstand so many tides ...

47. The opening of the new Primitive Methodist Church at Ruswarp near Whitby, August 17th, 1910. The church is decorated with bunting and all the ladies are out in their finery.

48. Glaisdale near Whitby at the height of its importance as an ironstone mining centre. It is dated 1872. Now little evidence of this era remains to be seen.
