Lemington was a small riverside village, about 7 miles from the city centre, when the railway arrived in 1876. The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1891, in Algernon Road, part of the new development which spread up the banks as a result of the new influx brought by the railway.

The back of this postcard is interesting. Dated 9 June 1906, the unknown sender writes, 'This is the church that I go to. It stands in Algernon Road (Front of it) & Lorraine Terrace. I live about 4 streets behind this church.' And then the cryptic "Are you musical". 

It was addressed to Miss Alice Dunn, 27 Belmont Road, Harrogate, but there is no stamp - was it sent?
