Mary Ann Thurlow

Mary Ann Thurlow

Mr. Main sent us this portrait of his grandmother, and the next, following a recent visit to Loftus and Boulby.  Mary Ann was the eldest daughter of John and Isabella Thurlow of Boulby Barns Farm.  She was born in 1875.  He thinks that this portrait was probably taken for her 21st birthday while she was working at Studley Royal, near Ripon, in 1896.

Liverton.

Liverton.

Somewhere different I don’t think we have another photo of Liverton or of these cottages which I always knew as Petch’s Cottages am I right? As Jill Gale tells us: ” This is at the corner of Moorsholm lane with main road. Village hall to far right of picture.” Bill Watkinson tells us: ”I and my family lived in the last one next to Moorsholm Lane from 1968 when we bought it for £2500 and they were known as 4 Petches Row then. My Mum and Dad sold up I about 1984 when a motorcyclist was killed in the side garden. The second house in the row was lived in by Mrs Harrison and young Jim her son who worked at the Shrubberies. The house behind the village hall was lived in by a lady with Parkinson’s disease where I used to go to get our Sunday chicken.”

Skinningrove Gardeners

Skinningrove gardeners, believed to be outside the allotment association shed on the hillside above the end of Zetland Row. There is quite a bit of produce on view so could possibly be show time?

Colin Hart tells us: ” I believe the photo was taken with Primrose Hill (middle and bottom rows) in the background and the cliff and cliff field to the right.”
