Image of the week: Dancing at Leys Hall (1953)

Photograph of couples dancing at Leys Hall

Did you watch Back in Time for the Weekend on the BBC on Tuesday? The programme explores how we spend our leisure time has radically changed since the Fifties.

The above photograph shows couples having ‘good old fashioned’ fun at Leys Hall. We hope that whatever you are up to this weekend you enjoy yourselves as much as these young people captured in all their glory by Borough Photographer, Egbert E. Smart in 1953.
