North Skelton Postcard

This tinted postcard of views of North Skelton, dated 1910 proves how proud residents were of their communities. The view of the mine complimented by the railway station, with Bolckow Street and Vaughan Street being named after the owners of the mine. Judy Last tells us: ” The lower right picture of Vaughan Street shows my grandfather’s shop. He was Postmaster in the family’s General Stores, and later went into business with his brother-in-law calling the business Tuck & Thompson. The address was 27 Vaughan Street, and my father was born there in 1897. Not sure when they left the property but they had moved by 1911.”

    Lovely card. The lower right picture of Vaughan Street shows my grandfather’s shop. He was Postmaster in the family’s General Stores, and later went into business with his brother in law calling the business Tuck & Thompson. The address was 27 Vaughan Street, and my father was born there in 1897. Not sure when they left the property but they had moved by 1911.
