Editor's choice


          Annual Feast Week, Yeadon, c1800 - c1900


           This weeks image from a bygone age when Yeadon folk and many from the surrounding area

enjoyed a day and evening out on and at the attractions.


          Here on the left we see two young ladies descending from a fairground ride. 

    The little girl in the white dress appears to be holding a toffee apple, whilst on the right the boy is

giving the camera a doubtful glance.
