EDITORS COMMENTS
Old Towngate, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire: A Journey Back in Time (circa 1910s) Step back in time with this photograph of Old Towngate in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. This quaint and picturesque street, now famous as the location for the beloved British situation comedy "Last of the Summer Wine," once bustled with the daily activities of local merchants and millers. On the left side of the street, the wagon of Gledhill & Brook, corn merchants and millers, can be seen waiting patiently for a large truck to pass through. The narrow streets of Holmfirth, which have remained largely unchanged over the decades, pose a challenge even for the largest of deliveries. The wagon is filled with sacks of flour and grain, ready for distribution to the local community. The ironmonger's shop, with its intricate sign and assortment of wares, adds to the vibrant scene. A swallow perched on a nearby ledge seems to be keeping a watchful eye over the goings-on below. This photograph offers a glimpse into the rich history of Holmfirth, a town that has long been a hub of industry and commerce. The wagon and its contents serve as a reminder of the hard work and dedication of the local merchants and millers who played a crucial role in the town's economy during this era. As you take in the details of this photograph, you can almost hear the sounds of horse hooves on cobblestones and the bustle of activity that once filled the streets of Old Towngate in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.
