As a boy I lived in Artillery Place at No16, the last house at the top of the street. next door were either the Lee family or the Parry family, they may have lived the other way around. Th Catlow family lived, I think at No4. i lived there from about 1952 to 1959 and our family relocated to Tynwald Drive, Moortown.

For most of my childhood I lived at Number 6. The house was a through house the back was known as Back Artillery Place and the front as Artillery place. There was a building opposite which we called the chalk factory which made orniments,and further up the street was a scrap yard. I have read the previous comment from John Mason who we grew up with.

I lived at number 6 Artillery Place and attended Roundhay Road School, the head teacher was Miss Croft and the deputy head was Mr Freeman. There was a pub opposite called the Queens and a fish and chip shop on the corner which sold the best fishcakes ever,There was also a coop and I still remember my mums Dividend number, amazing what you remember, that was 50 years ago .

Like Maureen I too attended Roundhay Road CP and also remember our Co-op number, which is amazing since I can't remember my own name some days. I remember Mr Freeman and his shiny bald head. He used to take us up to Soldiers Field for games in the summer, usually cricket ( where he did all the bowling so he didn't have to run ) or sometimes rounders.

Dear Maureen Catlow, I used to go to Roundhay Road when the lovely Miss Croft was Head. Mr Freeman often whacked me over his knee and I still have his ubiquitous phrase, "You'll thank me for this one day." in my head. (Still haven't!). I spent many fond hours playing with Rita Hudson and your sister Anne. Do give her my regards and ask her to get in touch (if she remembers me!) I used to live at 4 Tramway Street with my brothers Alex and Jack and sister Isobel. Fab times back then, even if they were in black and white!

I was at RRCPS from 1949 - 1955-6? My brother is Mick Taylor{Tichie}sister Violet Taylor. I moved to Canada in late 1966.
