This week’s retro page has gone back as far as 1910 and runs all the way through to 1999. The black and white images were all taken from the archives of the Harrogate Advertiser and its sister paper The Yorkshire Post. They show a wide variety of events, from film star and actress Sarah Churchill opening a fashion show in Harrogate to four young Army apprentices who took part in Exercise Parashot with other units of the British Army.
They are pictured with Sgt. Major John Hagard and Sgt. Major Bill Jamieson. There’s also a war evacuation and sporting events featured.
