Photos from 50 years ago
Tuesday, 16 June 2015
Terry Roberts grew up in Hebden Bridge and now lives in Bingley. When his Central Street School class were moved into the Old Grammar School, there was a competition to rename the school. Terry's suggestion of Riverside was the winner. Terry has contacted the HebWeb to make available some old photos of our area that he had in his possession, most of which were taken by him. The quality of the photos vary but give a vivid impression of our town 50 years ago.
Above: Buttress Brinks demolition. c 1963. Terry told the HebWeb that "Buttress Brink was not a place to go when he was a kid… "some dodgy kids there and very unhealthy conditions."
