Anyone with 1 hour 25 minutes to spare ?


Recommended Posts

totally off topic, but anyone with time to spare, 

I have not seen this video before, 85 minutes of photos and postcards of Dewsbury.

I have picked out most the the pubs, and also a lot that I didn't know about. and now demolished.

and a few Landmarks, take a look, the times that they appear are in mins and seconds.

Brilliant RPH and many thanks for drawing our attention to it - some fab memories and I’m only half way through- but I do recognise the arch at minute 28, it is the Queensway or Kingsway Arcade I think which runs between Foundry Street & Northgate just by the old Gas Showrooms (where Bradford & Halifax Roads split). The pic shows it before it had a roof and what is now a cafe was Wigfalls electrical store, source of many old tv’s and cheapo record players in the 1960’s & 70’s. Time to look at the rest I think - one q for the old timers, where was Lady Wood as shown in one or two pictures?
