This is a magazine published seventy years ago, in 1948. It is the Keighley Parish Church magazine and is celebrating 100 years of that particular building, with recollections of the history of the parish and various adverts from local businesses at the time.

Just a reminder that this Wednesday (9th May) sees David Scrimgeour visit us and give his talk on how Victorian photography evolved through the taking of portraits of asylum inmates. More details by clicking on the event listing to the right.
The Tour de Yorkshire cycle race passes through Oxenhope, Haworth, Oakworth, Goose Eye, Sutton and other areas of Keighley today. We wish all the riders well and hope for no accidents like the one on this postcard sent from Silsden to Oakworth in 1904.
In Keighley it’s local council elections day today. Here is a canvassing leaflet from the History Society’s digital archive from May 1959.
