    OLD PHOTO ( unknown team ) – Just had a quick glance and I recognise one of the men, dressed in dark jacket with tie, on the left of the picture, middle row and looking away from the camera – he is most definately a “Hoggarth” and I am pretty sure its “Barney Hoggarth” – Barney farmed at Low Stakesby until the mid 1960s the farm was on the site of what is now Stakesby School.

    After compulsory purchase by the council, Barney moved to Hinderwell but continued using the pastures at Low Stakesby until about 1968, the men in the photograph are dressed for summer, some with trophies, my guess is possibly a Quoits team.

      Hello David,

      What a fantastic set of photos! I’m particularly interested in the one of East Row, Sandsend. There is a cross on the photo above the house my Grandparents owned. Do you know any of the history of this photograph?

      I think this photo I not of my father as he looks too old on it. It could be my grandfather or one of his brothers.

    I do love some of these photos showing how the town has changed (both good and bad) over all these years. The one “Another Shot Of Khyber Pass At Whitby” reminds me of the large one in The Spa.

    Actually, that one on The Spa is a great one to send people to go and see when they make comment on the new pier lights and how they should look like what used to be there – because when you look at the photo you’ll see lamps that look pretty close to the new ones that were put up just before Christmas.

    Theres also an excellent Sutcliffe one which shows the lights as they were many years ago. There’s one hung near the pool table at The Ship Inn (My fave pub).
