Top left hand side, block of flats. My grandma lived in the last house in Eastwood Lane, No. 56. My grandad had the night watchman's job when the flats were built (Lily and Jack Power). I too played in those fields when I went to my gran's.

For Lynn Monaghan. Are you the daughter of Michael Power, Lily and Jacks son? I lived at No. 54 Eastwood ln. I was good friends with Mick and I remember him boarding at our house when Lily was taken ill during the night and was taken into Seacroft hospital. I woke up to him sharing my bed the next morning. Is Mick still living in that area? I know they moved away when I was still a kid.

I lived at 154 Stanks Lane South from 1955-1964 and remember Tony Sirrell well, his brothers Trevor and Brian were like brothers to me.I can remember most of the families who lived in the area including Michael Power.The Swarcliffe shops are on the photo. There was Groves Fish and chip shop, Charnleys Butchers,Joe Browns Greengrocers, Tricketts Sweet shop, Maypole Grocers. Also on the street was Bill Switchgears factory. We moved to Ash Tree View in 1964 I would like to hear from anyone who can remember me, or wants to share any memories of those great times.

We moved from Chapeltown Road to Ash Tree Grove as soon as it was built. I grew up in Stanks. I had the Stanks Lane South Evening Paper round,and the collecting round. I used to collect on a Sunday Morning and often had upto £250 in my leather bag. Din't get touched. Not once. I worked for Tom Hudson, who gave us our bags outside the Chippy on Stanks Parade.

@Andy Reece Hi Andy, I remember everything you say, I also had a paper round and collected the papers from outside the chippy, I'm sure I used to do Stanks Lane South as wel and also Stanks Drive, it was one of the biggest rounds, and the bag was really heavy. I used to go round collecting money with a friend Ian Wray, you may know him. Was also mates with Paul Towers and Phil Pratt, Remember the horrible Saturday Evening 'Green Final' round as well?? When you were on about the Whinmoor pub, and the group, it was Johnny Joyce and I'm sure he played the baby grand that was in the concert room, he was a brilliant singer. I also was engaged to Christine Angood who lived on Stanks Road!!!
