Bonfire in Celebration of the Coronation of King George V
22nd June 1911. Image shows a huge bonfire built for the celebrations held to mark the coronation of King George V, on the 22nd June 1911. The bonfire was constructed in a field just below the Peacock Inn in Harrogate Road. The view looks south towards Rawdon, and Larkfield Mills on Canada Road can be seen on the right. On the left, Billing Hill is visible, known locally as 'The Billing'. Behind the bonfire the stone wall, cutting across the picture horizontally, follows the line of Harrogate Road where the telegraph pole is standing (right).
