Photos from 50 years ago

Tuesday, 16 June 2015

Terry Roberts grew up in Hebden Bridge and now lives in Bingley. When his Central Street School class were moved into the Old Grammar School, there was a competition to rename the school. Terry's suggestion of Riverside was the winner. Terry has contacted the HebWeb to make available some old photos of our area that he had in his possession, most of which were taken by him. The quality of the photos vary but give a vivid impression of our town 50 years ago.
