Just an selection of odds and ends for now.

  • Coll. AMHS. Postcard posted in 1930. Shows two passageways at the left- the present one leading to the Masonic Hall and another uphill of the flagstaffed Comrades' Club, (presumed to have been once called Bank Lane- the Masonic Hall having been Alston Bank).
Kings Arms have added the word "garage" to their gable end inscription and the Co-Op sign rides high above the Market Cross. Two carts ride up hill- beyond a wraith-like figure.
