Men are leading horses pulling a sled laden with milk churns which they were bringing down from Guiseley Moor, this was during one of the worst winters on record.

This certainly was the worst winter in my memory and my dad who was out of work at the time went out shovelling snow for the Council he was paid a shilling a day bring your own shovel and i can remember him coming in for his dinner and my mother trying to dry his clothes by the fire so he could go out again and him sitting close by trying to get warm, when we opened the door in the morning we could only see a drift of snow which fell in on us it was so deep my dad had to dig his way out and dig a path down the street to get to work for the council , there were no cars those days mainly horses an carts so channels had to be dug everywhere you wanted to go .|I feel cold just thinking about it.
