New picture postcard to help Chanty Chapel

Transport from the past is the theme of a new picture postcard created to raise cash for Wakefield’s Chantry Chapel.

The black and white photographs show traffic on the medieval bridge by the chapel on the River Calder.

A horse-drawn bus from around 1900 and a tram in the 1930s are among images on the card, created by Friends of Chantry Chapel member Brian Holding.

The postcard, printed by David Baxter, also shows members of Wakefield Cycling Club on the bridge earlier this year for their Saturday morning ride.

It will be on sale for 25p at the chapel during an open day on May 27 and on Wednesday afternoons in June.

Friends of Chantry Chapel look after repairs and maintenance of the building, which dates back to the 14th century.
