Gomersal Working Mens Club

Does anyone have any pictures of Gomersal Working Mens Club. I was born there in 1957 and my parents were the Landlord and Landlady - Mr & Mrs Potter. I would love to see some pictures of the house and hear of any memories people may have of the place. My brother was 16 in 1957 and I believe the Club ran rock 'n' roll nights?

Longfield Working Mans Club

Hi, does anyone have any pictures of Longfield working mans club, it was on Longfield road, Heckmondwike, at the bottom of the cemetery in Heckmondwike. It was bought by my family in 1960 and changed from a club to a house but I am after any pics or info about it when it was a club

Cinemas In The 1950s

In the 1950s there were two cinemas, 'The Pavilion' and 'The Palace' and every Christmas there was the famous Heckmondwike Illuminations which ran for the full length of the town and attracted thousands of visitors from a wide area. For many years my grandfather George Arthur Fisher ran a greengrocer's stall on the market.
