|||Proclamation of King George V, Yeadon Town Hall (Yeadon)
|12th May 1910.
In this postcard image dignitaries are gathered on the steps of Yeadon Town Hall for the proclamation of George V's accession to the throne. Edward VII died on 6th May 1910 and George V was proclaimed King in Windsor on 11th May. Proclamations then followed all over the country. Members of a brass band can be seen behind the officials. The gentlemen on the steps will include members of Yeadon Urban District Council. The onlookers surrounding the steps are mainly local school children and their teachers. Around this time pupils of Standard I attended school in the Town Hall before moving to South View School in South View Road (now Rufford Avenue). Yeadon and Guiseley Secondary School had also opened, relatively recently, in 1909.

|||Town Hall Square, viewed from High Street (Yeadon) (4 comments)
Early view of Yeadon, looking across the Town Hall Square from the vicinity of the High Street. Rawnsley's confectioners/grocers shop is to the left of the image and this was to be replaced by the Co-op, which in turn became Yeadon Library. Yeadon Town Hall, located on Town Hall Square in the High Street, dates from 1880. To the centre of the image is a horse-drawn omnibus.

|||Yeadon Town Hall, High Street (Yeadon)
|12th August 2009.
Image shows Yeadon Town Hall, erected between 1880 and 1881 at a cost of £8,000. It was designed by architect, William Hill in the gothic style. The large public hall was built to accommodate 1200 people, making it a suitable venue for local amateur dramatic societies to present plays and musicals. Originally, the ground floor housed the offices of the Urban Distict Council. The illuminated clock within the tower was presented by Joseph Peate, a local mill owner. Vans are parked on the cobbled Town Hall Square and the bus stop in the foreground is for travellers to Bradford, Shipley, Guiseley and Otley.
