RECENTLY we published an old picture of undeveloped land at Back Water Street, in Skipton, where Eller Beck ran past and under the road near Coach Street. You could just make out the steps leading down to the beck.

This week we have been sent a photo dating back to around 1930 showing a group of five friends enjoying a summertime play near the beck.

The picture was sent in by Ann Garner and shows her, mother, Florence Dent, who was born in Back Water Street in 1922, sitting on the left.

She is with friends Freda and Rita Moore and Sheila and Margaret Gale.

Sadly Florence died in February this year after reaching the super age of 98.
