What we know about this image :

Pattison's caption on this photo was 'Whip behind.' The two boys have hitched a lift on the running board and Bob is not too happy. The cab is outside Station Hotel which was built in 1873 and, sadly, demolished in the first part of the 21st century. Bob Proctor, who lived in Church Street, Seaton Carew, ran his cab to and from the railway station.
