Skipton : Rowley Collection website
« on: Jul 27, 2004, 12:55 »
The Rowley Collection website is a tribute to the late Dr Geoffrey Rowley the eminent Skipton historian, who with Mr. Ken Ellwood gathered together these fascinating prints.

The website is an online gallery of over 500 historic prints of Skipton, fully indexed. You can search the collection for images of:
?  Canal
?  Coronation
?  Galas
?  Group photos
?  Shops
?  Market
?  Railways

Dr Rowley died in November 1987 ? he had suffered from Parkinson?s Disease for a number of years.

After his death, his widow, Valentine, donated all his notes and research to Skipton Library and Information Centre and has continued adding to the collection.
