CHILDREN were enjoying holiday fun when this photograph was taken at Yeadon Dam in the 1930s.

The picture, from the archives of Aireborough Historical Society, shows children paddling in the water - something which is not allowed now.

Archivist Carlo Harrison said: “This view looks across to Dam Lane, the shelter towards the left was one of several dotted round the lake, the only structure remaining is on the Cemetery Road side now used by model boat enthusiasts as a headquarters.

“Several cars are parked behind the shelter, in this era the cost of parking a car here was a shilling, a large amount but presumably car owners were able to pay it.”

In 1990 pupils at Burley C of E primary school were presented with an award for an environment project.
