Picture of Yorkshire Evening News sign in Headingley, Leeds
This old sign or poster on the side of a building in Headingley got my interest.
Its promoting a newspaper that has not existed since 1963.
The Yorkshire Evening News was founded sometime before 1890, because thats the year the Yorkshire Evening Post (YEP) was started to compete with it. Today all that is history because back in 1963 the YEP absorbed the Yorkshire Evening News.
In August this year Johnston Press the parent company of both the Yorkshire Evening Post and the sister paper the regional daily the Yorkshire Post would move from their current home to No 1 Leeds, formerly Latitude Red, on Whitehall Road.
