We carry on the nostalgic trip through the 70s in this week’s retro pages.

The pictures, from JPI Media archives, were all taken in the second half of the decade, from 1976 to 1979.

Her Majesty The Queen - who celebrated her official birthday on Saturday - features several times in this week’s pages. 1977 saw the Queen mark her Silver Jubilee, and one of the pictures shows workmen installing flowers around a coronation crown in Harrogate to mark the occasion.

The Queen, accompanied by County Coun. C.P Blythe, chairman of the North Yorkshire Education Comittee, watches gynastics in the 'Growing up in North Yorkshire' display. July 14th 1977.

You can also spot some other well known faces, such as Bing Crosby, Sir Geoff Boycott and Brian Close.

Send your pictures for a future Retro page to [email protected] Please include details about the image, your name and contact number or email.
