Nostalgia: ‘The refined amusements of polished life’

For gentlemen who wanted to catch up with the latest news there was the coffee-house. Scarborough seems to have had only one of these places which, as shown on John Collins’ street plan, dated from at least 1725. It stood at the corner of Tanner (St Thomas) Street at its junction with the north side of Newborough and nearly a century later it was still there.

Postal votes are freely available on a come-one-come-all basis.

Howard Croft column: Carefree world of our postal voting system

Several years ago, when I realised that I would have to visit the United States at a time when a general election was being held at home, I applied for a postal vote. This was a concession rarely granted, as was widely known, and only for what were regarded as excellent reasons by some sceptical jobsworth . A scheduled holiday would not qualify, nor would being confined to a wheelchair. Business travel was regarded as borderline and my application had to provide such details as departure dates, destination, nature of business, names and addresses of overseas business contacts and evidence that an airline ticket had been purchased. All of this had to be supported in writing by my boss, who of course was easily fixed, who would assert that under no circumstances could the plan be postponed.
