Home-made mediaeval musical instruments were played by pupils of Western County Primary School, Harrogate, in a Youth Week at Harrogate Theatre, 1974.

Nine black and white pictures showing the Harrogate district in the 20th century

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.
