Tollgate, Melton Mowbray
A colour postcard depicting the 'Mad' Marquis of Waterford and his friends painting the Grantham Toll Gate red, which was on Thorpe End. Date not known.

"Spree at Melton Mowbray
Larking at the Grantham Toll-Gate
Or Coming in for the brush
A society of distinguished painters
Wo hunt with Fox Hounds, Live Splendidly, and only Paint at Night
They left no man's Sign Name, or Calling
Untouched by something most appalling"
