In the right foreground of the photograph is the former City Museum. It operated there from 1883 to 1903 when the property was demolished to be replaced with the Spa Baths. Further back is what would become the Drill Hall on the corner of Somerset Row to accommodate the increasing number of Territorial Soldiers in Ripon; previously, the Georgian Theatre on Park Street had served in this capacity. It functioned as the pre-war headquarters of No 3 Troop, C Squad Yorkshire Hussars Yeomanry and H Company, 5th Battalion, West Yorkshire Regiment. An auxiliary hospital was based at the Drill Hall during the First World War. All the railings have since gone, many removed for scrap in the Second World War.
