I lived there with my parents from 1957 to 1968, i remember Gallons, Mr Kellys grocers (he was known for saying thank you very much thank you!) then there was the Paprika coffee bar, owned by a hungarian man who later opened the Cigany restaurant in Headingley. does anyone else remember any of these places?

I remember the San Remo coffee bar, I went to Thoresby High School on Great George Street (1958-1963), we had our games lessons at Woodhouse Ridge, some of us would go to the coffee bar afterwards before catching our respective buses home. Early 60s.
