Description:
Undated, Postcard view of Tong Road. On the right edge is Grasmere Street with 92A Tong Road, which was business of H.G. Taylor, a jeweller and pawnbroker. Number 94 is to the left, occupied by Percy Heaton, a picture frame and instrument maker. The street at the left side is Simpson Street. This is probably around 1900.

I think the building on the left, close to the horse and cart may be the City Hotel. I went to the same school as the daughter of the licensee, Mr. Beaumont, and went there quite frequently to see her. This would be about 1950.

The City Hotel as stated is on the left nearby the horse and cart. Going up Tong Road on the right after Simpson Street was Gledhow Street then Fearnley Street and Fitzarthur Street followed by Mickley Street. The frontage of the shops at 92a became Russells Shoe repairers and 94 Tong Road became the local post office until they were demolished in the 1960's. The bottom of Gedhow Street became Smiths Dairy.

I lived in these streets from the mid sixties until they were demolished. They were demolished from approx 1979 to mid eighties. There were another 2 streets in between Fitzarthur St and Mickley St, there was Armley Grove Place (where I lived0 and Masham Street. The shops at the end of my street were Pullens Newsagents and Burns Chemist. The White Rose pub was built in the 1970's on the site of the City Hotel.

The White Rose Public House was built where the Cemetery Pub was (near Redshaw Road). Also, I think the Street next to Mickley Street was called Whitely Street. My grandparents lived in Middle Cross Street which was one of the streets leading off Mickley Street.

With regard to the comment about the White Rose pub, this was and still is situated at the Tong Road/Redshaw Road junction on the site of the former Cemetery Hotel somewhat lower down than the City.

What times we had. Nobody got burgled (unless you had a gas meter that took shillings). Everyone knew everyone, doors were open, toilet yards for everyone, tin baths once a week (unfortunately I was fourth in line so it was closer to a mud bath). Can anyone remember if we smelled bad because I can't (we must have stunk). My memory recalls lots of good feelings, but I don't know why.

Look at the shop's one on every corner, not like that now, Google this same location on Google maps, not a shop in site. It must be a bus ride to tne nearest shop's? great town planner's??.
