1912. Image shows a group, posed photograph of members of the St. John's Ambulance Brigade. They are gathered together in the 'Swan Field' at the rear of the White Swan public house. Mrs Hardwick, second from the left in the middle row, was well respected and loved by many Yeadon people as she was known as an unofficial District Nurse and gave medical advice and help to all who needed it. Her daughter, Elsie Hardwick is on the right of the front row, third from the end, and Robinson Walker is the tallest man, second from the right on the back row. The Hardwicks had a shop in the now demolished Walkers Row and the Walkers had a shop at the top end of Town Street.
