Pateley Bridge is famous for its historic beauty and this century-old image illustrates that although times move on, it remains instantly recognisable.

It is believed the original photograph was take around 1905, when the world was a very different place.

Children can be seen walking past a milk cart, in an era where few could have dreamed of electric milk floats, let alone supermarkets selling it by the litre.

The Crown Hotel has survived, however, and the photograph also takes in Simpson’s Temperance Hotel, with a lamp advertising wines and cigars also visible.

This image is one of more than 6,500 historic views of North Yorkshire available at the County Record Office. Buy a copy or browse the collection.
