Sweeping Changes Affect Brighouse - 1957

   The year is 1957 and whilst it might not be the most memorable for Brighouse, looking through the newspapers quite a lot did happen that year.

The Bow Window...a town centre institution...

It is over fifty years ago that what can almost be described as a local institution closed in Brighouse. An establishment that had been open for almost a century and was known across the generations. 

Do you remember Raymond Forrester ?

The name of Raymond Forrester may mean little to some readers, but to those of my generation he is remembered as one of the longest serving swimming baths attendants at the Brighouse swimming baths in Mill Royd Street. He is shown in this photograph many years after his retirement.
