On This Day…

This Tuck’s Post Card of Cavendish Street was sent across the border to Lancashire on 1st February 1909. Crowds had gathered for what was still the novelty of having their photograph taken and the overhead wires of the electrified trams can clearly be seen.

The postcard is from the personal collection of Tim Neal. Over 450 of Tim’s postcards of Keighley and the surrounding area can be seen on the History Society’s Flickr site.
