Loftus Mine

Loftus Mine

A lovely photo of the mine, but I think it may be a postcard. Someone has cropped the card (not guilty) but part of Geo. Skilbeck’s name can still be seen.

Now the fan falls into disrepair as the mine is no longer working.

Another Carriage

Another Carriage

This one on the promenade at Redcar, a Sunday afternoon constitutional perhaps.

A Dull Day

A Dull Day

Yes looks rather a dull and dark day at Redcar with not many shoppers about. I love the carriage on the left, maybe it’s waiting to take a shopper back home.

Postcard

A lovely card showing five differnet views of Redcar not very often you see one with South Gare on.

It's Quicker By Rail

It's Quicker By Rail

That’s what the poster tells us and it was probably right in those days when Saltburn was in Yorkshire.

Russ Piggot tells us: ”As it says LNER on the poster it dates it form sometime between 1923 and the end of 1947 as BR was formed on 1st Jan 1948.”

Thanks to Russ for the update.

A Royal Visit.

A Royal Visit.

As Eric Johnson points out this is Middlesbrough, the Prince of Wales later Edward the 8th, at the  opening of Constantine college July 1930. This featured as part of the Royal visit to Britannia Steel Works.

On the left with stick Sir Hugh Bell, in centre Thomas J Kedward Mayor of Middlesbrough.

Thanks for that Eric for the updates.

Redcar Beach

Redcar Beach

A busy day on the beach and the full length pier I think. Couldn’t sit on the beach today too much seaweed, but still beautiful.  As pointed out by Tony Lynn; this is Redcar beach and not Saltburn as I had put!

Mind That Car

Mind That Car

Rather strange to see a lonely car in the High Street at Redcar.
