North Terrace Loftus

North Terrace Loftus

Approaching from Loftus this is the scene as you reach North Terrace; the dress would be somewhat different today but the houses haven’t changed much. Adam Cuthbert tells us: ”I recall viewing No 1 North Terrace as a possible home and found the original side oven still in situ!”

A Loftus View

A Loftus View

An aerial view of Loftus, one of a series taken by Mr Sakaropoulus in the 1970s. This image shows East Crescent, the Arlington estate and on westwards towards the Market Place. How green and verdant the area looks, ‘garden city’ like?

A 1910 Liverton Mines Scout

A 1910 Liverton Mines Scout

Edward Frederick Dohring pictured in 1910; a proud member of Liverton Mines Boy Scout Troop, he is in full Scout uniform for this early period of Scouting. Baden Powell (a copy of whose signatory hat Edward is carrying) held the first Scout camp on Brownsea Island in 1907. This image taken in a studio gives an idea of how rapidly this active boys organisation had spread. In the 1911 census his family was listed as being resident at 8 Graham Street, Liverton Mines, Edward was then a Grocer’s apprentice; aged 14 years.

Skinningrove – a colourful view

Skinningrove - a colourful view

A view of Skinningrove from the road close to St Helen’s church, Carlin How. A colourful view of what was then a vibrant community; although top Primrose Hill has been demolished, Hutton Street and the Co-op building are still intact. How it has changed.

Bedrooms again

Bedrooms again

Pupils bedrooms at the Towers obviously included dolls cots for the younger pupils; carefully lined up beside the fireplace.

Gymnastics anyone?

Gymnastics anyone?

A further view of the gymnasium at the Towers School, although yet again the appropriate dress seems to be skirts. Surely this would have been a problem with the parallel bars? We presume this was a posed image perhaps for a school brochure.

Swimming Pool

Swimming Pool

Towers School pupils enjoying bathing in the swimming pool in Saltburn baths. The sea water for the pool was changed once a week and the water was officially described as ‘tepid but we suspect that would mean cold! These sessions would be non-public and for the sole and exclusive use of the pupils of Towers school.
