Title: Horse Omnibus Outside The Lord Roberts Hotel, Scunthorpe c1905
Author: Arthur Henry Singleton, Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe
Date: An April 2018 scan of an original c1905 photograph
Comments:

Early photographs of Scunthorpe are rare. This one is superb!

The lettering on the carriage says, "TO AND FROM THE GREAT CENTRAL RAILWAY", which was at the Frodingham end of town.

The Lord Roberts Hotel still exists but, sadly, this wonderful Victorian frontage has been modernised.

Lord Roberts was a famous British soldier who was one of the most successful commanders of the 19th century.
