609 West Riding Squadron, Spitfire (Unknown) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated, Image shows a Spitfire funded by the Leeds Spitfire fund with members of the 609 West Riding Squadron. When the fund was launched in 1940 nearly £30,000 was raised. The 609 was originally composed of volunteers and were based at Leeds Bradford Airport. They flew Spitfires and won distinction during the Battle of Britain, being the 1st Spitfire Squadron to shoot down 100 enemy aircraft. After the war they were disbanded but reformed in 1946 to fly Mosquito's until 1957 when they were completely disbanded. The Spitfire shown has the words "City of Leeds" on it but it is believed it is not the aircraft bearing that name, as this was lost in action before the photo was taken. The name was chalked on for the photo but the aircraft depicted is actually believed to be P8098 "Enfield".

7th Lord Mayor's Parade, Woodhouse Moor showing a young participant (City Centre)
Colour image21st June 1980. Image taken during the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade which started from Woodhouse Moor. The little girl, in her fancy costume, is seated on the float entered by Lewis's department store depicting a steam engine of the American West. The engine is constructed using bales of straw, but on the outside it was completely covered in over 20,000 ribbon bows in red, green and gold. The little girl wears a sequinned, layered net skirt and a silver cape trimmed with swansdown. She carries a wand with silver bells, beads and trailing white ribbons. It was a cold, showery day but a successful one for Lewis's as the store won 'The Lord's Mayor's Award for the Best Overall Entry.
