Skinningrove from Furnaces Overlooking Grove Hill and the Valley

Lovely clear photograph of the ’Grove with Grove Hill clearly shown above Zetland Row. There is a cross mark on the photograph which was believed to indicate the Working Men’s Institute building of the time. S. Welford commented: “The cross usually was special to whoever originally sent the postcard or photograph. It often indicated home, holiday home or had a special significance.” However John Kennedy pointed out: “Looks like the Working Men’s Institute, too tall for the Infant and Junior School.” Thomas Sayers confirms this fact with: “I was born in Skinningrove and the building with the cross on was indeed the Working Men`s Institute. I also taught at the Infant and Junior school. There was no separate Infant school; the Senior School is in the foreground, bottom left.”

Thanks to S. Welford and John Kennedy for the updates. Also to Thomas Sayers for confirmation of the buildings.
