LPE – Haworth 1940’s Weekend

Day Trips, Leeds Photography Excursions

As a special LPE trip in conjunction with my birthday celebrations this weekend, myself and some of the members of the Leeds Photography Excursion group decided to take a steam train to Haworth and step back in time.
Commemorating all things 1940’s, there are attractions such as vehicles from WW2, a Spitfire, talks, 1940’s songs and dances. Many of the visitors join in with the dressing up, lots of victory curls, army fatigues, and tea dresses were on show. Below is a snapshot of the days visual spectacular.
