This week we’ve gone even further back in time as these pictures were taken exactly 60 years ago in 1962.

It’s the year when the first Beatles single Love Me Do was released, and Marilyn Monroe was found dead.

In Harrogate, 1962 saw Bettys buy C.E. Taylor & Co to become ‘Bettys & Taylors’. Taylors sourced and blended tea and coffee and has gone on to become a much-loved part of the Bettys range.

See next week’s Harrogate Advertiser as we move closer in time - will you be featured?
