Whenever we stayed with my father’s parents in Yorkshire, we went to the beach at Hornsea. I don’t remember it ever being particularly warm – let’s face it, the North Sea isn’t known for it’s tropical temperatures.
And I’m so pleased to find this This is one of the machines they use for making rock – I remember being fascinated by the way it span!
As I think I’ve mentioned before, I’ve never seen the Humber Bridge complete. This is what the pylons looked like in 1974.
A couple of colour shots of Yorkshire from summer 1965.
Lower Falls, Asygarth
The Shambles, York
Rievaulx Abbey – this is actually from 1971, as the chronological order of the slides leave something to be desired at times.
This was taken in July 1957, but something about the way they look makes it look way older than that.
From Hutton-le-Hole, North Yorkshire – August 1955, but looks almost timeless.
From a trip to Malham in the Yorkshire Dales in 1950, quite possibly Youth Hostelling.
Not really sure where this waterfall is, as a quick Google search for waterfalls in Malham doesn’t come back with anything looking much like this. It would seem that Malham is close to Gordale Scar (it’s not an area I know at all), but there is a different photo that looks like the waterfall there. Any ideas anyone?
