The photograph shows Stockton High Street, I think around 1900, but I’d welcome comments.

This is a very wide angle shot of the high street, practically all of the East side is visible, even as far as the Victoria buildings and Church.
A recent posting mentioned the Scammel Scarab three wheeled vehicle, one of these is parked at the kerbside, further along is a Wynns heavy haulage wagon, this may also be a Scammel, I am sure somebody will know for certain.
These large heavy haulage vehicles were a fairly common sight in the Teesside area during the 1950s and 1960s, they carried large fabrications into the big industries such as ICI, usually the haulage firms were Pickfords and Sunters.
The number 2 bus ran from Stockton Town Hall to the Transporter Bridge via Norton, Billingham, Haverton Hill and Port Clarence where you could either cross over to Middlesbrough or catch a Hartlepool Corporation bus number 1 which would take you to Seaton Carew.

Sorry I don’t know the date but it was taken after the east side redevelopment. Can anyone hazard a guess?

My Great Grandmother used to herd pigs to market in Stockton. This is an old print that I have from my Great Aunt who had a millinery shop in Stockton when I was just a kid in the 1940’s. I was born in West Hartlepool and emigrated to Canada in 1963. I hope that your visitors find this old print interesting. The drawing was by one Stockton’s famous artists and furniture designer Thomas Sheraton (1751 – 1806).
