Seen here in 1904 is Tomas Claughton with his family in what was reputably the first car in Guiseley. I count a
total of eleven persons sitting in this vehicle with not a seat belt in sight, I wonder what police would have thought at that time.
Sydney Claughton is seated in the rear of the car third from the left.
Tomas's father Hugh Claughton, had a boot factory which occupied the site later taken by the Silver Cross pram works between Otley Road and Back Lane. Hugh and his wife had six children, Tom, Nathaniel, Wilfred, Polly Jenny and Lily.
