Black & White image6th June 1892 Members of Queen Street Methodist Chapel and Sunday School have assembled at Hopeville before taking part in a Whitmonday walk. The children are lined up at the front and the adults are at the rear,all wearing their best clothes. It was traditional for children to have new clothes at Whitsuntide. Hopeville was a large property, with land belonging to Ernest Ethelbert Slater, son of the historian Philemon Slater. E.E.Slater was a keen amateur photographer and this is one of his images. Hopeville is situated between Harper Lane and what was then South View Road. In the background is Yeadon South View School, a Board school built in 1882 at a cost of £6,000. It is at present in the process of being demolished, and a wonderful open day was held in the summer of 2004 celebrating, in photographs and memorabilia, over 120 years of the school's history. A new school is to be built on the site.
