59. The official opening ceremony of the City of York Yearsley Baths. Note the car and costumes the ladies are wearing and the two gents in straw hats.

60. This narrow lane is near the Minster, with the lady in her long white apron standing in the doorway watching the cockerill and pullets in the road.

61. The army always liked to be able to bring back with them from foreign campaigns some captured enemy weapons to put on display at home. This is a Boer War Gun in York,

62. This is Marks and Speneer's standard type shop front in the 1914 period. This is from their original Y ork shop.

Rensomes. Srrns. & Jefferies Ltd .. Traction Enqine

. From H. BUSHELL & SONS, Vork.

63. One of the traction engines which were available from H. Bushell & Sons of York which would be used amongst other things for threshing on the farm. Very few people could afford a machine of their own, so the work went out to contractors.

64. Aseene from the Vork Historie Pageant of 1909. This was probab1y the first of the loea1 pageants. Thirsk eertain1y had one as did Piekering in 1910 and also Searborough 1912. Both of these two were held in the respective eastle grounds,

65. The York Gala of June 1905 showing the round abouts and the swings. It was obviously an occasion for everyone to get done up in their best attire. You will note how everyone has something on their head.

66. Scenes taken in the snow seem rather scarce. This is Micklegate Bar in the snow in 1905. It must have been very silent in the snow when there were no vehicles to disturb the peace.

67. The beIls of York Minster had been retuned March 1914 by J ohn Warner and Sons, Bell founders, and here they are on display before being re hung,

68. This military parade, which inc1udes at least one Scottish soldier in beret with pompom on it, must have been ab out the beginning of the First World War by the look of the uniforms. In the background are the premises of The York City and County Banking Co Ltd., forerunners of the Midland Bank I believe.
