AHS Collection - 10th September 2021
This week we go back 43 years to 1978 Yeadon and a Charity Bath Push raising money for cancer charities.
It began at the Robin Hood Hotel, Yeadon and finished in Scarborough.
The bath was provided by Chloride Shires of Guiseley.
Seated in it on the left is Catherine Campbell and on the right Julia Firth, daughter of Vera Firth.
Also present were Adrian Procter and Catherine Gaunt
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.
