FOR this week’s Way We Were we have revisited one of our favourite topics - Ryedale businesses from years gone by.

This time we are focusing on Pickering and have found five photographs of companies dating back to the 1980s.

From top left, we have Lawson Larg (1987), Derwent Plastics (1988), Arden House (1988), Derwent Plastics (1989) and HPE Printers (1984).

Have you got any old pictures you would like to see in the Gazette & Herald? Email it, along with details of when and where it was taken, to
