TASTY REWARD OFFERED IN SEARCH FOR HISTORIC PICSA tasty reward is being offered in return for help with tracking down pictorial evidence of Yorkshire's agricultural heritage.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) is offering a free meal for two at next year's Yorkshire Show to whoever comes up with the best photograph of rural life in Yorkshire at the turn of the 20th century.
CLA regional director, Dorothy Fairburn, said: "Next year will mark 100 years since the CLA was founded in Yorkshire and we are planning a host of events to celebrate this major milestone.
"We are particularly keen to assemble a montage of photos that were taken around 1907 and we will give a free meal for two to however comes up with what we feel is the most interesting photo dating back to that period."
It was in 1907 at the Station Hotel, York that the Yorkshire Land and Property Defence Association held its first meeting and began to lobby MPs on topical agricultural issues. The following year it joined forces with the newly established Central Land Association in London, creating an influential industry body that is today the Country Land and Business Association.
Celebratory events scheduled for Yorkshire in 2007 include a special founders' party at The Royal York Hotel (formerly the Station Hotel), a summer garden party, joint activities with local schools and a number of special centenary competitions.
Anyone with an agricultural related photograph dating back to around 1907 should send in details of the picture to: Historic Photos, CLA, Old Toll Booth, Market Place, Easingwold, YO61 3AB or email firstname.lastname@example.org
