Pop on a pair of white gloves and take a very close look at our collection of cartoons by the illustrator H.P. Templar in the company of Harrogate historian Malcolm Neesam. Templar's drawings, which depict the daily routine of visitors to Harrogate in the 1890s, are packed with interesting details and comic observations of the busy spa town in its heyday.
