Postcards from Wensleydale

18th January – 11th February 2022

We are delighted to have been loaned 45 vintage photographic postcards depicting Wensleydale by local collector Clive Torrens. Predominantly dating from 1900-1925, all the postcards were produced by Leyburn photographer J.B. Smithson and offer a fascinating insight into life in the Dale a century ago.

The postcards have been reproduced in the exhibition on a larger scale for ease of viewing.



Mondays – Fridays 8.30am – 5pm

Saturdays 9am – 5pm

Sundays 9am – 4pm
