AHS Collection - 17th September 2021
This week we go back 127 years to 1894 Yeadon, High Street, and a Band of Hope parade.
The Band of Hope was founded in Leeds in 1847, a Temperance Organisation which hoped to make people
aware of the misery and poverty which working class children suffered when adults drank too much.
The block of property which included Rawnsley's shop and Poll Marsden's lodging house were demolished to
form part of Town Hall Square, the Town Hall is set back on the right.
(SL013) - The photographer was E E Slater of Hopeville House.
Whilst the AHS website contains a wealth of information it does not contain all the photos, documents and maps which we hold.
Grateful thanks to Carlo Harrison who instigated digitising the collection and created this AHS website.
