“The pictures are testament to the talents of our award-winning photographers. What better way could there be to celebrate our birthday?”

Images in the calendar include Leeds United’s players toasting their 1992 league title win on an open-topped bus parade.

There is also a stunning shot of the world’s greatest cyclists making their way down the Headrow in Leeds during last year’s Tour de France Grand Départ.

Other events that feature in the calendar include Leeds’s annual West Indian Carnival and Leeds Rhinos’ Challenge Cup victory in 2014.

The YEP was first published on September 1, 1890, with a promise to bring its readers “news of all kinds”.

Our calendar is only part of a programme of anniversary celebrations that has also seen the brewing of a YEP125 beer and a link-up with Leeds Rhinos for their match last week against New Zealand.
