In the 1940s near the end of the war a school mate and I used to take a large leather suitcase to a small grocer's shop on this street it was fill'd up with all the weeks rations, we had a right job to get the thing off the Clifford bus on to the Wortley tram, I never found out why we came all the way from Wortley in Leeds when there were all kinds of shops on Wellington Road, as a kid I did'nt ask why, all I did know he had lived in Clifford for a while. His name was John McClean we both were at Green Lane School at the time.
