Undated. Looking west along Rawdon Town Street. On the left is Rawdon Post Office, then further along the junction with Henley Close. On the right is a row of houses known as Egerton Terrace.

This used to be the Nags Head Beerhouse and was run by my Gran and Grandad in the 1920's Walter and Clara Louisa Long. When my Grandad died my Gran remarried (Jack Braithwaite) and moved across the road to Grange Farm (demolished and now the site of the school carpark)
I used to live down knott lane in the 60's early 70's,the building on the left just after the junction was a sweet shop called isabell's,who would shoo her cats off the counter before weighing your sweets out.
I remember Isobells in the 1970's calling in there every Friday afternoon to buy a quarter of Jelly Babies for myself and half a pound of Richmond Selection for Harold Speight when on the regular Green Grocery delivery round from Meeks of Horsforth.Great Days!

SO MANY people remember Isobel and the cats but she had a great collection of penny and halfpenny sweets and the best lemonade and rainbow crystals!
