The picture shows Cow Green before the multi-storey car park, flats and road-widening scheme of 1971. Until 1858, the area was used as a livestock market.

Taken from a book by Edward Riley and photographer Ian D Swift in 1980, "Calderdale Then And Now", which compared old photographs with contemporary pictures of the same scene.
