This year All Our Yesterdays takes us back to 1965 … and one of the big events that year was a trip by Huddersfield Choral Society to the USA.

The pictures in this nostalgia selection show them on their trip to Boston which helped soprano Miss Edith Doyle realise a long-standing ambition.

For 25 years Miss Doyle, of Brighouse, had kept up a correspondence begun in 1915 by her mother, Mrs Emily Doyle.

The week-long trip to Boston enabled her to see the person behind the other letter box – 89-year-old Miss Ethel Pierce, who lived in Needham, 12 miles from the Massachusetts city.

Miss Doyle’s Boston hosts – former Brighouse couple Mr and Mrs Frank Eccles – took her on a surprise visit to her pen friend.

Other pictures show competitors in the 14th annual Dusk ’Til Dawn Rally promoted by Huddersfield Motor Club throughout a Saturday night in the autumn of 1965, a three-month firearms amnesty which yielded a large haul of weapons for the police and an old World War Two mine arriving at The Ship at Mirfield to collect money for the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners’ Royal Benevolent Society.

Other pictures show how the new Somerset Bridge at Aspley was taking shape.
