1:An advertisement informing cinema patrons that admission prices were  changing, this was a glass slide which would have been projected onto the screen.
 
2, 3, 4, 5, & 6: A series of road safety advertisements to be shown in the cinema for Aireborough Road Safety Committee.
They include a warning "A bed at home is worth a dozen in a hospital ward", a cyclists week "Safe Cycling Saves Sorrow", a road safety quiz to be held in Yeadon Town Hall in October 1947 and a plea to parents to set a good example to their children.
 
 
7: An advertisement on a glass slide to be shown in the cinema, it exhorts patrons to save gas "Turn Down That Gas! Don't heat more water than is necessary. Don't let a light glare around the pan!"

It advertises Road Safety Week with an exhibition to be held in Yeadon Town Hall.
 
14: An advertisement on a glass slide shown at the Picture House (cinema).

It is for "Aspro", an aspirin based analgesic medication which has been available since before 1918 in various forms.

Here it is claimed to alleviate "nerviness, sudden chills and sleeplessness"!

15: An advertisement for "Apro" aspirin tablets to be shown in the picture house.

 

16 to 22: Aspro advertisements on a glass slides to be at Yeadon Picture House.

 
23: A plea to car owners to park behind the Picture House, at that time the High Street carried 2-way traffic so presumably a few cars parked outside the cinema could have caused a problem.
 
24: Advertisement giving details of a Xmas Eve Matinee for children.
On a glass slide to be projected onto the screen in the cinema - a simple device compared to the sophisticated costly advertisements seen on cinema and television screens now.
 
25 & 26: Two advertisements for Vernon's football pools coupons  to be shown in the cinema.

Love this can remember these lovely hand written signs and having them being flashed on screen whoever wrote this could not decide whether to use a small or capital D for the pence! I can also remember other advertisements on screen which were hand drawn for local hairdressers. electricians and local amateur productions etc! They would slowly flash across the screen. Sad we don't seem to be "patrons" anymore.
