Today's featured photograph dates back to June 22, 1911, and the coronation celebrations for the new King George V and Queen Mary. This is the preparation spit for the ox roasting at the Rastrick cricket ground. Having seen a photograph of the huge ox before its roasting it must have taken hours to cook and there would have been enough meat to feed the community for days in meat sandwiches.
Wellholme Park Children’s Centre has been serving Brighouse families since its opening day on Saturday 12, September 1942. It was opened as the Wellholme Day Nursery by the Chairman of the Brighouse Health Committee, Alderman Ben Asquith, in company with the Mayor Alderman Herbert Womersley JP.
My featured photograph is showing the junction of Bonegate Road and Old Lane in Brighouse, but what was the date when these children were caught on camera?
'So you want to be a Pirate...' That is the name of my Zoom PowerPoint which I did for the first time today as a Zoom for the Oddfellows Society. Usually, I do it as a live presentation and one I did on a cruise ship 18 months ago, but today was a first. It went really well, everything worked as it should do. The music played when required and the audience from far and wide enjoyed it. Hopefully, this will be the first of many more. It was a good day today.....
