Re: Old Photos of Leeds

hardly any punters left who drink in pubs in the inner burbs, so hardly surprising. Looking back, there were some right shitholes.

Have to agree with that - some of those boozers in Armley were half derelict anyway. Others on the estates hadn't been painted since they were built and contained some of the biggest psychopaths in the country. I wonder where they all go now?

The one that always tickled me is Hawksworth conservative club. What?

Re: Old Photos of Leeds

There was a Harehills Conservative Club, had the best snooker room in East Leeds. Lot of ex-service men used it, everyone used to go in a suit and tie (or so my memory suggests). Mind you back then NE Leeds was a tory stronghold.

Aye, see it, now. I'd not scrolled down that far as it was too depressing.

But very clean shoes it seems, I like that.

Re: Old Photos of Leeds

Wouldn't it be grand if they all stuck there thumbs in their mouths, puffed their cheeks, and their hats all popped up. The shoes are very clean. Excellent picture.

That's a great picture from Cuts' link above. VE Day, of days readily within our consciousness that has to be the most collectively euphoric day there's ever been.

Until seeing this I didn't really know exactly what a wash house was, this is from the 60s, it was still going in the 70s.

Yes, that must have been some feeling. Closest I came was standing outside Leeds Town Hall when we won the First division under Howard Wilkinson. Er, not quite the same though is it...

The striking thing about that photo is not just the pure joy on their faces, but the age of those two very young lads in uniform at the front.

Re: Old Photos of Leeds

Up Garforth we had the anti aircraft battery up where the Garforth Town ground is now. This consisted of 3 or 4 concrete bunker / pill boxes and a couple of red brick buildings long since demolished by the 1970's / 80's. Made for an ace place to play, game of war in the semi underground brutalist buildings, with a real chance of finding a twatty and then over to the Garforth pitch for a game of Wembley doubles or headers n' volleys.

Turns out it was manned in the 1st as well as the 2nd world wars. Here's a photo of the lads from the time of the 1st enjoying some fags and showing off their dogs. Can't help thinking it wasn't a bad posting considering...

"At some point he suggested some of the range moved to his families larger production unit again close to Leeds. The photo above is that building,"

Closer to Leeds from Kippax by about 1 mile if that. That's Garforth Bridge, opposite the Old George, Post Office sorting office now, site was demolished in 1983.
