This week we are stepping back in time to the first half of the 1960s.
These pictures were all taken from the archives of the Harrogate Advertiser and our sister title The Yorkshire Post. They show scenes and events from across the district between 1960 and 1965. Do you recognise any of the people or places pictured?
Pick up next week’s Advertiser to see photographs from the second half of the decade.
You can also send your nostalgic pictures for a future Retro page to [email protected] Please include details about the image, along with your name and a daytime contact number or email address.
