Market Place

A lovely framed postcard image of Loftus Market Place, the time on the clock can be clearly seen and the Loftus Urban District Council crest gives an idea of the period; pity there isn’t a date on it.

    it was Loftus urban District Council in the county of North Yorkshire. I was born in Loftus and my birth certificate says north Yorkshire. We are part of Cleveland but not Tees Valley.

    Surely that is the Zetland crest, rather than the UDC? Certainly “Essayez” is the Zetland motto. All the documents I have seen for the Urban District Council use “Vis Virtus Velocitas” – also now used by the Town Council
