Domestic Street, looking north-west
Description:
18th February 1980. View looking north-west along Domestic Street towards the railway viaduct in the distance. On the left is the forecourt of a petrol filling station. The next building along, William Hill bookmakers, has an advertising hoarding for Bisto gravy on the side. On the right are the junctions with Pleasant Mount and Pleasant Terrace.

Also here was a street Pleasant Place.I have a (posed)photograph outside the house of my Grandfather showing my grandparents, uncles and aunts. I guess the photgraph was taken around 1905. I am told my grandmother would lend money to neighbours with the proviso that the money was spent at the co-op, the dividend 'check' being handed over as 'interest'

The leading one of the two cars going down the road is just about opposite Pleasant Terrace, (on its right), and adjacent to The Methodist Chapel, the top part of whose frontage can be seen on its left. The building is still there,(27-3-2006), though it is now used as commercial premises.

Can anyone remember the Pickle Factory further down on the rightjust past the Pleasants? I think it was called KEILLERS? Pickled Onions, Piccalli, Red Cabbage and Beetroot were some of the products offered. We kids used to collect jam and pickle jars which financed many school trips ( Ingram Road CP). I believe this company bought them from the Headmaster.I would love to know what the going rate was.

There was a pickle factory down Holbeck called Exleys which produced APEX pickles. Could this be the one? Keillers were marmalade, surely?

Yes Chris you are right , the Pickle Factory was called Apex, i lived in Pleasant View,just before the factory going down Domestic Street from Top Moor Side end, Cecil keene's Chemist was at the end of our street, and we too used to trade our jamjars in for money to fund school trips also. Oh they were the days. Bring them back , times seemed a lot more innocent then.

Chris Went is correct. Keiller's were marmalade. They were based in Dundee, Scotland. Although in later years it was just the name only. They had been bought by Cross & Blackwell in 1919, and after further changes of ownership, ended up as Robertson's. I haven't seen any for years now, but I understand that an American outfit still markets it.

APEX pickles- of course well remembered Chris Went. Were Keillers marmalade jars ribbed? The pickle factory would not buy ribbed jars!

I live in 8 Pleasant View with my Mum Doreen, my Dad Victor and my Brother and sister Margaret, and Michael. My brother and I used to frequent 'Jack Graftons' barbers (opposite this garage). where the only cut on the menu was short back and sides. My friends there were David Vause, Brian Underhill and Gary Thompson.

Mad Jack's Barbers! I loved going there, his nephew Phil worked there too, ended up running the place if I remember right. Jack played his trumpet while cutting people's hair. Happy days!

Brian Thomas's 2nd comment:- It is interesting to see his remark about the pickle factory not buying ribbed jars. It's understandable, since back in those days, a ribbed bottle still indicated that its contents were poisonous. I can re-call that back when I was a kid, we had the odd bottles, which, not only being ribbed, were also coloured - - - the colours Green and Blue, spring into my mind. I remember that such bottles were always kept out of the way. I am led to believe that those colours allowed one to identify such a bottle in bright sunlight, although the ribbing would be a clue as well. Further, the ribbing would be of great help to a blind or partially sighted person. Perhaps the pickle factory were happy to avoid any association at all with ribbed bottles.
