Saltaire Village is near Branford in West Yorkshire, England. It was named after Titus Salt who built a textile mill and village on the River Aire. In December 2001, Saltaire was designed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is a monument to the people who lived here. The Wilson's and us spent the afternoon here. It was a massive place.

David Hockney 25 Trees and other Pictures were on display. He documented the East Yorkshire landscape in great detail. This display was 27-foot long pictures of Bessingby Road in Bridlington. The photo was of the same street at different times of the year. 
 Inside the walking store they had a giant backpack. Try using it Elder Allen and Elder Wilson?
 Giant chair near the antique centre. 
Do you remember these? This was before cassette tapes and CD or SD card.
