THE ILKLEY Howitzer Battery football team appeared on postcards after posing for this photograph in July 1918.

The picture, taken in France, was posted to a resident of Marsden Terrace in Guiseley. Other than scant details about the name of the battery and the date and location no message is written on the 'carte postale'.

Health and safety clearly wasn't considered a top priority when the second photograph was take in 1965.

From the archives of Aireborough Historical Society, it shows the demolition of houses on Otley Road, Guiseley.

Archivist Carlo Harrison said: "In the left background is the Primitive Methodist Chapel (also called Providence Chapel) which was not pulled down until 1970.

"The camera has caught stone falling from the top of the building, the front of the properties has an ethereal appearance being shrouded in dust.

"Now look closer, the building is being knocked down by a man in a bulldozer (no hard hat, no hi-viz) with a plank of wood wedged in the bucket of his bulldozer. Another workman (no hard hat, no hi-viz) standing perilously close to the now being demolished building.

"Health and safety, of course, a small sign saying 'Danger' not even sure they had closed off the main road, I doubt it."

Advert: An army of officials to enforce compulsory rationing is being organised with expediency and thoroughness and the machinery of this organisation will be put in motion if the necessity arises. It rests entirely with the public whether that army of officials will be called into active service. Think of the difficulties of a fair and equal distribution among such classes of workers as a) agricultural labourers; b) manual workers such as engineers, dockers, railwaymen and labourers and c) sedentary workers such as clerks.
