Old photos

Some nice old photos here: http://www.francisfrith.com/keighley/

Re: Old photos

Thanks Allan for the lead to the Photos . I really enjoyed them , the street scenes were pretty well traffic free and I had forgotten the approaches to Victoria Park which was our where we had a go at tennis and puttting etc. There are fine shots of the school down North Street.

Re: Old photos

Thanks for those Allan. I have been collecting old Keighley photos for a while and have in excess of 800 on my computer. Many of the KBGS ones will be also on here. There is a Facebook group for those interested in Keighley Heritage here...https://www.facebook.com/groups/keighleyhistory/

Re: Old photos

Many a retired person's hour can be spent by doing a Google Image search for Old Keighley. Surprisingly few detailed photos though of the old town centre between Bow Street and Low Street. Do you have any in your collection, Brian?

Re: Old photos

Quite a few Allan, but they're not school connected so I cant really post them on here.

Re: Old photos

The photos library here has a section for Old Keighley. Maybe there? But only if others are interested.

Re: Old photos

Certainly interested if you can find the time Brian.
