Claphow Lane 1940’s

Claphow bridges in the 1940s, I would not advise walking along the road in this manner today. It is now known that the two ladies are: ”Two sisters (left to right); Joan and Emily Greensitt whose family owned a guest house on Marine Parade, Saltburn. The image was taken of them taking a leisurely stroll through the Claphow bridges about 1940”

Claphow Bridges

Claphow Bridges

It must have been a wet walk that day, judging by the dress of the miners and the shining road. We asked ”More importantly can anybody identify the men?” and Paula Miller now tells us ”This is the Moody brothers of Lingdale”.

Hinderwell Station

Hinderwell Station

A line-level shot of a local train in Hinderwell Station. The loco is a 2-6-4 BR Standard Tank, number 80118, so this image could well be towards the end of the line’s life, certainly in the ’50s, when this class took over from A-series 4-6-2T.

For the railway modellers among you this particular locomotive is available from the Bachmann stable for ’OO’ gauge, in early BR livery – probably exactly this era (sorry for the geeky information). image courtesy Maurice Grayson.
