The scrub land to the right is now Bestway Cash and Carry. Heidelbergs is to the right and onto Canada Dry (as was) further up.

The yellow Jet sign is at Tennant and Shillings garage and the factory in front of the maisonettes is that of Drawn Metal. Oh and the car is aVauxhall Viva!

Comment:
I worked at Tennant and Shillings in the late 1960s as a coach painter and car sprayer, the firm painted vans for Timothy Whites and Taylor's, Burton's, Whitbred's. I was repainting Burton's Ferrari when a panel beater spilled some petrol from a petrol tank out of a Jaguar on the floor just as mechanic lit an oxygen touch, the fumes from the petrol ignited and in no time the Jag and Ferrari were involved in flames, the mechanic was on fire running round the shop, we caught him and he was taken to Leeds Infirmary in serious condition. I left soon after to take the paint shop managers job at VW on Regent St.
