Introduction

Saville street links Yorkersgate with the Market place. The buildings are dominated by the two chapels: the Methodist chapel originally built by the Wesleyans, and the Independent chapel. Both were built in the early 1800s. The Dispensary, the forerunner of any hospital in Malton was at the top of Saville street.

Serious Fire started on the premises of Mr Brown, hairdresser, etc., corner of Saville street and Yorkersgate. Spread to Mr Dodsworth's house and into Mr Byass's dairy shop below and there seemed every prospect of spreading to Mr Soulby's wine and spirit shop below, and Mr Dodsworth's furniture shop next door. Both were saved. Mr Soulby and Mr Brown were insured, Mr Byass lost all his stock and was not insured. 'If any generous people feel disposed to help him in his distress we shall be glad to receive and acknowledge any amounts that may be sent to Messrs. H. Smithson & Co., Messenger Office. Malton Messenger 5 March 1910.

Mr Soulby was able to advertise in the Malton Messenger of 12th March 1910 that 'The business will be CARRIED ON in the premises in Saville street as usual during repairs.'

It may have taken Mr. Brown a little longer to find alternative premises as he is advertising in the Malton Messenger of 19th March 1910 that he has opened in Railway Street.
