A charming view of the Station Hotel on Otley Road with Oxford Road to the right.
This photo was taken before the trams came to Guiseley in 1909 and is a bucolic scene with a cow strolling across what is now the A65, one of the busiest roads in the area.
The Station Hotel has a canopy to the front which has since been removed, children sit beneath a gas lamp in the middle of the road, this is now a pedestrian controlled crossing.

Re FF165

There is a sign on the roadside that says ” All Cars Stop Here “, so it is probably to do with tram cars, and there are two men dressed in transport uniforms with the long white coats. They are obviously celebrating something, could it be to do with King George V.
