This week’s trip down Memory Lane takes us into the first half of the 1980s.

The pictures, from our archives, were taken in Harrogate Ripon, Harewood, Wetherby, Boroughbridge, parts of Knaresborough and Tadcaster between 1980 and 1984.

This era saw Prince Charles and Diana get married at St Paul’s Cathedral in London on July 29, 1981 - can you spot yourself in any of the street parties celebrating the Royal Wedding?

Or do you recognise any of the other events in these images?

Send your pictures for a future Retro page to [email protected] Please include details about the image, your name and contact details. For more retro pictures, pick up a copy of this week’s Harrogate Advertiser
