Notice the red-brick building at the rear of the bus station stands. This was the old abbatoir. Is the tall chimney part of the abbatoir where possiby the carcasses were incinerated? I remember many times\eports of animals escaping and running amok. One was once reported to have reached Harehills and was caught near the Clock cinema.
