Postmarked Middlesborough, Yorkshire, dated 5 July 1950.

Clock Tower and High Street, Redcar.

Redcar was at that time in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The word "riding" is of Viking origin meaning a third. The other two ridings were East Riding and West Riding.

The Clock Tower still stands today as can be seen in this photo.
