The hunt for film and photos of bygone days

The Yorkshire Post:

The Friends of Roundhay Park are on the hunt for archive film and photographs.

The group is currently working with Yorkshire Film Archive to produce a DVD to celebrate the park, in Roundhay, Leeds, as it used to be.

A spokesman for the Friends of Roundhay Park said: "We want footage and photographs taken by ordinary people visiting the park or attending events. We are also interested in the stories behind them.

"We ideally want material from before 1980 but there is really no time limit – so that would include such things as the Rolling Stones and other pop stars who gave concerts, mods and rockers in the park as well as older material such as Royal visits, children's day and the lido."
