Derby & Joan Entertainment – 1953
The ladies of the Darby and Joan committee provided this entertainment in Yeadon Town Hall.
They are in a variety of costumes which represent different historical periods, two ladies at the front are holding a picture of Queen Elizabeth 11, “God Save Our Queen” is displayed at the front of the stage.
It appears to be a tribute for Coronation year.

I remember quite a lot of these by sight and can name one or two, the big man with the flat cap on the right back was Joe Haverfield, who lived next door to us, the woman in black three in on the middle row was Mrs Shaw Flesher whose husband kept the school tuck shop, the lady three down from the open door was Ida Watson whose daughter once owned the chocolate box on the high street, I think the man in the flat cap next to her was Fred Eastwood who also kept the paper shop on the right hand side of the High Street.
