   This form of transport was common in the village for those who could afford it.

   location of this image has remained unchanged to the present day.

   This image was loaned to me by Mr. Alan Sowter in 2000 and shows his father
   astride his motor cycle, the image being taken at the rear of Orchard Terrace.
   I'm sure a motor cycle enthusiast will identify the make, model and year of the machine.

An early form of transport for a child. Reg. Shepherd and his mother.

   Reg. Shepherd aged about 4 years (c.1941) with his mother.  His fron wheel tricycle (trike)
   was being pedalled by Reg along the front of West View towards Spray's yard.  This road is now
   named Main Street.  No doubt the photographer would be Reg's dad, Charlie Ben Shepherd.

   model E493A built between 1949 and 1953 and the car, reg. no. VRR 541 is an Austin Cambridge either an
   A40 - 1200cc or an A50 - 1500cc, most probably the latter, built between September 1954 to 1957.

The train now passing Palterton and Sutton Station is a !!! A railway engine as used on the Midland Railway at Palterton Station
   This image is of a railway engine in the 3F 0-6-0 series that worked the line through the Palterton &
   Sutton Scarsdale.  Station on the Doe Lea branch of the Midland railway line from 1890 to 1932 and
   later.  Coal mines often used their own steam locomotives to haul materials.  The majority were small but
   powerful coal fired 0-6-0 tank engines.  Some were fireless.  Developed in Germany in 1890's.

This vehicle was seen daily in Palterton delivering bread The Bakers van.

   This vehicle, though owned by a Carr Vale family, was used daily and delivered bread to Palterton.
   The identity of the persons in the image is being verified.      

Horse and cart Horse and cart.

   I believe the two people on the cart are Charlie Ben. Sheppard and young Eric Frith.
