1613 : Archives - Home Collections


HOME COLLECTIONS
This is one of my earliest pictures, taken well over fifty years ago, and it features one of the wagons being used at the Halifax Charity Gala (in 1965, I suspect). They were collecting for the Halifax Children's Holiday Home which had been established in Norland (just outside Halifax) in 1937 in order to "provide holidays for needy local children". Those were the days, when an exciting holiday could be had two miles up the road in Norland.
