Normanby School Standard 6 Class 1914
. . . . by Peter Standley   sent 15th November 2013

 The 1914 photograph in the Article 'Normanby School 1914 Class Re-union' labels one of the teachers as 'Jack Stanley'.  He was my Grandfather Arnold Jack Standley always known as Jack.
 He went on to be Headmaster at Kirby school (in the 1920s I believe) and retired in 1948 as Headmaster of West Dyke School in Redcar.
 He was brought up in the 'Royal Hotel' and in later years lived in Jubilee Road.
 I have a clock presented to him by the Eston Miners Institute on 'his leaving the area' in May 1922.
 His brother Tom Standley is commemorated on the Eston War memorial.
 I would be most interested if any members of the group have further information, especially any photographs or information about the location of the 'Royal Hotel'

 This is the location of the Royal Hotel, Eston:
   No.109 High St, Miners Arms (the original),
       now Bookies & Chinese Takaway.
       Then entrance to William Street.
   No.111 High St was a drapers shop named Craddocks,
       on corner of William St and High St
       (window in William St). Not shown on 1891 census.
   No.113 ROYAL HOTEL,
       I remember it as being a small pub and double fronted.
   Next Police Station, then hospital.
 Nos.111 and 113 were demolished (don't know date)
   and fast food place built on this site.
   Now being developed as housing/apartments?
 I lived in West St - next to William St. I will try to find a photo.
