The picture does show part of the Primmy, also in background H.Browns clothing manufacturers, next to the Primmy was St Michaels C of E which was used by Bus School On Meanwood Road for special services. The shop supplied many drip cakes and bacon/tomato dips sarnys for Browns(no taste like it today).

This photo was taken in '62. However, in the late 40s the 'demolished' houses were still lived in although over a hundred years old and should have been condemned then. The corner of the building visible to the right is in fact The Primrose Pub and just out of sight is St. Michael's Church.
