North View, Westerton Road, street decorations (West Ardsley) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows street decorations in North view, Westerton Road. The photograph is inscribed with the name G.M. Whitlam, an East Ardsley photographer. This is obviously a time of celebration and there are large letters on the walls of the houses spelling a message part of which can be discerned to read 'Success to the . . . '. The clothes of the residents may date the occasion to the 1930s. Any further information would be welcome. Image used courtesy of Peter Aldred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
