THESE photos – provided by Kevin Seaton, of Riddlesden – feature the old Co-op store in South Street, Keighley.

They clearly show the marked contrast prior to and after a major renovation scheme.

And the third shot features some of many goods packed into the shop in the 1920s.

The Co-op Group has its origins in the co-operative consumer societies started by the Rochdale Pioneers in the 1840s.

In 1863, the independent societies formed the Co-operative Wholesale Society. It provided products to sell in hundreds of Co-op stores.

Over the next century, the society underwent many changes and eventually became the Co-operative Group.

In the First World War, the Co-op was the first food retailer to introduce rationing to ensure everyone got their fair share of items.

And the group claims several other firsts in its sector – including the first to introduce degradable plastic bags and the first to sell Fairtrade bananas and have its own Fairtrade brand.
