A street plan of Keighley from around 1963 has been added to the History Society’s digital archive on Flickr. As well as the map, it is interesting to read the account of the town from that time and to see the adverts for the various businesses. Click below to see more.
The Keighley and District Local History was formed in 2004 to mark the centenary of the town’s Carnegie Library. Some photographs from the early years, taken by then secretary Barbara Klempka have been added to our digital archive on Flickr. Click on the image below to look through the album.
