Historic Wakefield Photo Challenge!

We thought we would set you a challenge.

We received a collection of glass slide photographs a couple of years ago that were originally used by Sandal Endowed School. They show landmarks, landscapes and people in Sandal and Walton, (as well as a few other places) as they were around 100 years ago. You can see them all by clicking here.

Can you tell what they show, what places, what landmarks?

Start the debate, put your answers in as comments. We will post up the answers in a couple of weeks.

Some are easier than others, but there are one or two we don't know!

Good luck!

Mystery photos - what can you recognise?  Join the debate!  See them all here!

    1. Thanks for kicking this off John! Don't forget to have a look at the full album on the Flickr site - it's just a sample posted here!


We would love your comments - though they may take a day or two to appear.
