25 photo gems take you around Yorkshire in 1975

The glory of Yorkshire is celebrated in this gallery of memories charting a year in the life of God’s own county.

The photos turn back the clock to 1975 and showcase the stories which were making the news around the county during the year. Locations in focus include York and Harrogate in North Yorkshire, Bradford, Huddersfield and Leeds in West Yorkshire, Sheffield in south Yorkshire and Flamborough and Scarborough on the east coast. It was a 12 months which featured a home grown boxer showing fighting spirit on his way to a showdown with Muhammad Ali for the World Heavyweight title and a familiar face (again!) from the Yorkshire Dales being captured on camera.
