Peter Miller and Calder Valley Press

From Susi Harris

Monday, 15 March 2021

My neighbour has found a framed cartoon strip in her attic. Signed by the artist it says Peter Miller, but he may also be Pete Rigg who co-wrote a strip cartoon called The Mob. On the back is the logo of Calder Valley Press which I gather was a free 'alternative newspaper' for Hebden Bridge circulating in the late 70s/early 80s and carried The Mob once a week.

Does anyone know any more about this little bit of local history?  For once Google isn't much help at all.  I think my neighbour would like to find it a home where it might have some meaningful connection and memories....

The Local History Society archive has some issues of the Calder Valley Press and would be very pleased to add the cartoon to our collection.
