Sir Charles Mark Palmer’s Funeral


Sir Charles was seen as a great benefactor both here (he lived locally at Grinkle Hall, Grinkle Park – now a hotel) and at Jesmond, near Newcastle. His funeral on March the 7th, 1907 filled the little church at Easington, which he had erected as a memorial for his wife. This postcard view of the event was produced by Cattani of Redcar.

The original image was a half-tone (an image made up of numerous little dots) and our initial scan caused patterning, fortunately this new image (although a copy of the original postcard) when scanned has provided a better image.
