Yorkshire Evening Press

Yorkshire Evening Press stonehands posing in front of a Ludlow, late 1970s. The guy leaning in from the left is John Bradley, the big guy to the right at the back is Bob Procter, next to him Derek Johnson, left of him John Langthorp (wearing the “hat”) and the man at the front in the grey jacket was Frank Smith.
Intertype Monarchs
This pictures shows the same stonehands standing near the Yorkshire Evening Press’s Intertype Monarchs. I took the pic on a self-timer and I’m stood on the right in the white shirt (think it must have been my day off!). Apologies for the blurring on the people who couldn’t stay still for two seconds!
Terry Foster – reader, Les Lightfoot – copyholder — he fell into the rotaries downstairs twice and it was thought safer in the readers! John Langthorpe – comp. Tommy Arnold – copyholder. Derek Skillbeck – reader.

  1. The stonehand in the top two photos you can’t remember the name of is me, John Langthorp. I left the ‘Press’ in 1987 taking voluntary redundancy.
