Rov­ing snap­per

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS week All Our Yesterdays goes back to the mid 1970s.

Phillip Walker, aged 79, from Gol­car, de­cided to cap­ture how the town looked so went rov­ing around with his cam­era.

He cap­tured some great shots of the Colne Val­ley and a few of Hud­der­s­field town cen­tre too.

Many are from Scape­goat Hill, Milns­bridge and Long­wood and there will be quite a few Ex­am­iner read­ers who still miss the land­mark C&J Hirst Mill in Long­wood.

One pic­ture shows Shore­head in 1963, and an­other is taken in 1975 – and the roads looked so amaz­ingly quiet com­pared to to­day.

This pic­ture shows the view up to­wards Scape­goat Hill, and was taken be­tween Oc­to­ber 1975 and spring 1976.

More of Phillip’s pho­tos will be pub­lished in next week’s All Our Yesterdays.

Much of the Ex­am­iner’s pho­to­graphic ar­chive is now be­ing stored at Her­itage Quay, the ar­chive ser­vice at the Uni­ver­sity of Hud­der­s­field.

Her­itage Quay is open to the pub­lic. To find out more, call 01484 473168, visit www.her­itage­ or email
