In the background is a mock Tudor Building, which UI iknew as Goodall's iron mongers. A sweeping path led upt through a lawn, which, on fine days,was spread with lawnmowers and other garden equipment for sale. You could buy almost any hardware item there, though the wait could be interminable. Just behind the tram is the wet fish kiosk. Both Goodall's and the kiosk werre demolished sometime in the 60s when the Yorkshire Bank expanded.

This is a fascinating view that I haven`t previously seen. It really captures the time when Chapel Allerton was changing from its village roots to a modern suburban shopping centre, a process somewhat stalled by the outbreak of WW2.
