Historic Footage of Roberts Park

Thought everyone might like to see this vintage newsreel footage of Roberts Park! Originally recorded in Winter of 1910 – way back when hats were a thing, and if you were lucky enough to own a car you would have to start it with a handle…

You can clearly make out the old park bridge and boathouse in the short snippet.

Many thanks goes to the posters on the Shipley Photographs and Memories Group on Facebook for this footage.
