"One man band contest. Over the hills and a great way off the wind will blow my top

" One man band contest. Over the hills and a great way off the wind will blow my top hat off. So sings Sally Atkinson, three, and behind her dancing is her father Roy Atkinson, 33, of Victoria, near Holmfirth. They are prancing along on the moore above their home. Roy is practising for the one man band contest due to be held at Roundhay Park, Leeds, on Saturday.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this charming vintage photograph captured in August 1979, we are transported back to a simpler time filled with music and laughter. The image showcases a delightful scene of the "One Man Band Contest" taking place over the rolling hills near Holmfirth. At the center of attention is little Sally Atkinson, only three years old, who confidently sings her heart out while wearing an adorable top hat that seems ready to be blown away by the wind. Dancing behind her is her father Roy Atkinson, aged 33, proudly accompanying his daughter's performance on various instruments. The picturesque moorland above their home serves as their stage for practice before heading off to Roundhay Park in Leeds for the actual contest on Saturday. Roy's determination and passion shine through as he perfects his skills for this musical event. This heartwarming snapshot captures not just a family moment but also reflects the joy and simplicity of childhood during that era. It reminds us of how music has always been a universal language capable of bringing people together across generations. Preserved by Mirrorpix and now available through Memory Lane Prints, this print evokes nostalgia while celebrating family bonds, rural scenes, and travel adventures all intertwined with humor and love for music.
