Remembering an autumn royal visit to Mirfield

Princess Margaret is pictured with Father Hugh Bishop, Superior of the Community of the Resurrection. Other images from October of yesteryear include missions to seamen working at Middlesbrough in October 1942 and pickets outside Grimethorpe Colliery gathering around a brazier in the early morning chill in 1984. Perhaps you remember pianist and singer '˜Champion' Jack Dupree at St George's Hall in Bradford, in 1990 or see how kitchens have changed since apprentice chef David Colley was at the Grand Hotel, Sheffield, in 1963.
