Booklet published by G.H. Smith, 42 pages. A4 size booklet (N6359X2)

This booklet is a collection of around 70 black and white photographs showing the north Yorkshire market town of Easingwold in the early 1900's. There is no text, other than a contents page on the inside front cover (which lists the photographs), and the photo's range from one across a whole page to four on a single page.

The collection gives a wonderful impression of the old market town. General Booth visited Easingwold, and his visit is recorded as is the assembled staff of the Post Office - proudly showing off a motor tricycle. But the horse and cart is by far the most prominent means of transport depicted in these beautifully clear images. There is much to interest people concerning housing and there are innumerable photos of building work in progress. The Punch and Judy show shown on page 24 is delightful, and what looks like a mason’s branch is shown assembled outside the York Hotel (on page 25). The Easingwold Town Band appear in their uniforms on page 26 in a study that alone makes this volume worthwhile. The booklet also contains some pictures of nearby villages like Sutton-on-Forest, Huby (featuring the Maypole) and Alne.

The booklet will thus delight anyone who has lived or grown up in the North Yorkshire town, as well as people with a more general interest in the history of this area in times gone by

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
