Down Memory Lane


Essentially little has changed over the last hundred years - this was Fell Lane in the early l900s.
Described in the mid-nineteenth century as having presented "the gloomy appearance of depopulation and decay", Fell Lane revived largely due to the employment offered by John Stell and Sons, paper tube manufacturers at Holme Mill, and Joseph Town and Sons, paper manufacturers at Turkey Mills, Goose Eye -- the 1851 census records a hundred Irish immigrants in Fell Lane and Goose Eye, the majority working as rag-cutters in the paper mill.
The relatively self-sufficient nature of this community is suggested by the two small shops, distinguishable by their tin advertisements, in the centre and the left-hand background. The photograph is taken from the site, at the bottom left, of what was to be a bigger store set up by Fred Greenwood and his wife -- "Fred's" -- in 1928.
This locality was to be immortalised in the 1970s by the late Stanley Boardman in his legendary series of paintings, "1920s Boy".

I am really pleased that you are enjoying the paintings. I will put more pics on for you to see at the weekend.

Stan's father worked at Turkey mills as a papermaker as did Stan for a short time.

Fred's store endured for many years, Stan wrote his signs and decorated the bicycle powered ice cream ('Fred's Ices') cart that was quite famous in Keighley .

Stanley R Boardman - Page 2 509750 Very few girls around in the pictures, a sign of the times perhaps?

Hello to Jo

Great to find someone 'related' to Stan's ( My Dad ) pictures.

I have a copy of San's book but it is no longer in print and old copies are hard to find.

If I can help at all get in touch.

Hi Beacon? (Stan Boardman’s daughter I hope) I am the son of one of the '20s boys', and met Stan at Cliffe Castle with my father during Stan’s exhibition some years ago. My father appeared on a number of the 20's boys pictures along with his older brother, Stan's mate; Kenny. I remember one of the paintings featuring one of my dad's older brothers (he had five and a sister), looking over the wall of the knackers yard with, I think I remember being told, Stan’s brother. Both with a green faces. Also one with my grandma complete with Tate & Lyle sugar sack apron, feeding all the kids from the surrounding area with her chicken soup. My dad is the tiny one shimmying up the leg of the table in that picture. I would love to hear from you as I tried for a number of years to get a copy of one of the paintings for my dad, who has now very sadly departed. I recently met a lady who has a print of the painting of the queue for Fell Lane Chapel Sunday school, hanging above her mantle. She was given this by Stan, who at the time was a neighbour of hers, Stan is on the extreme left of the picture I’m told by the lady who is very proud of her picture. She is also desperate to find out more about the other paintings, and maybe a glimpse of what remains.

Evening sonof

I am indeed Stan's daughter and it is great to hear from you.

I have lots of the pictures still, although I have sold one or two to people who knew Stan and enjoyed his pictoral stories.
I live in Crosshills so you are welcome to see the pics anytime. Most are unframed ,there is a story behind that !
So are you a Harker ? Jill

Beacon. I am in deed a Harker, and I can tell you all that; that is my uncle Jim plucking a live chicken and the guy with the big ears is my uncle Kenneth (Kenny). I would love to see the pictures again. I would have sent Personal Message (PM) to Beacon via this forum but not figured it out yet how to. I've not fallen far from the tree, as I live in Haworth. I used to live by Fell Lane, near the Three Horses pub, which is named after the three horses the my great uncle used to cart stone from the quarry, and then pulled the snow plough in winter with them, (my cousin knows all the horses names). I took my father up to Fell Lane on a number of occasions after my parents moved away from the area, and he loved to point at the houses and had a story about each of the people who lived in them when he was a child, and the things his older brothers got up to are legend. Sometimes he couldn't get his stories out for laughing with tears of joy rolling down his face. Please PM me Beacon. Sonof20sboy. Thank you SKAY for linking me into this thread. ( skay, are you related to D, lived up Long Lee? and P of Silsden?)

Its great to see such an interest in Stans work. I was just a child when i met him, he was a friend of my dads, Ronnie Hollings, he even painted my dads wagon with my name on the side, will see if i can find any photos.
I have a signed print of "Band Of Hope" he auctioned a few off for Airedale Hospital charity i believe.
My dad asked him to paint a sad clown for him as some kind of joke, not sure what the joke was, but i still have it today. i remember him with fondness.

My bother and I lived in the house up Fell Lane next to the chapel, 243, the gable end of our house was in Stan's painting. I have a friend who has a ? Copy of the painting and both my brother and I would love a copy too.
Stan's daughter, please can you help.
We now both live in New Zealand.
I have a vague memory that Stan lived at 245 Fell Lane, is this correct?
My brother has just purchased one of the original books that Stan had published on line.
Look forward to hearing from you..
