To the very left of the photo is a shop which was at the end of a terrace of houses stretching from here to East Leeds WMC. At the club end was a fish and chip shop, run for many years by Mr. & Mrs. Overend. The breeze block makers to the right of the photo became Stocks Bros. When the area was developed manufacture moved to Ninelands Lane in Garforth. Out of the picture, to the right was a haulage company, F.Wright & Son.

Hi Alan Hargreaves! I think we might be related. I'm Florrie Richardson's son. My Brothers were Michael and Peter and we lived around the corner from your parents Jack and Mollie? Hope it's the same person. We now live in New Zealand.
