The location is the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Chapel hill, it was used as a meeting place for the club before the permanent home for the club was built by the Dam.
The money for this came from local people fund-raising until they had half the cost of building, Aireborough Council paid the other half.
The boys were taught gymnastics, boxing and exercising with Indian clubs.
The boy in the middle of the back row is holding a pair of clubs.
The man on the right is Charlie Hathaway who coached the boys, on his left is Jimmy Hairsign.
