How we used to live: snapshots of Sixties Huddersfield show lost places in town

Here are more images of Huddersfield during a transitional phase that many look back on with frustration.

In the Examiner last week we featured photographs taken by the late Alderman Clifford Stephenson.

They are a brilliant snapshot of Huddersfield in the early 1960s and the good news is there were more photos than we could squeeze in last week.

So here are more showing the town during a transitional phase that many look back on with frustration as several of our most prominent buildings vanished - including the old police station on Peel Street.

The 200 photographs taken by Mr Stephenson have been donated to Huddersfield Civic Society and capture scenes from an era that’s gone forever.

The photos were officially unveiled in Huddersfield Town Hall last night in an event presented by Civic Society chairman Chris Marsden.
