J.B. had two photographic studios in Leyburn, one in Hawes and several others in and around the Yorkshire Dales.
After he retired to West Burton J.B. and Mr Horace Brook from West Burton had a studio in JB's back yard.
J.B. continued with his love of photography up until his death at the age of 90 in 1938.

This is a BSA motorbike and sidecar but I don't know the model. The registration is AJ 2685.
A and Bs Motor bike Late 1970s
This bike did thousands of miles to and from the Yorkshire Dales until our children became too old to fit in the sidecar.
Our motorbike and sidecar was a BSA Golden Flash. Happy days.
