Commercial Inn, number 78 Elland Road
April 1968. View of the Commercial Inn at 78 Elland Road, at this time a Tetley's public house. The steps up to the entrance were built by the famous Yorkshire and England Cricketer, Robert Peel (1857 - 1941) who became Landlord of the Inn in the early 1900s. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Nice to see the old 'Fish & Chip Shop' still there before it succumbed to the voracious demands of the internal combustion engine, and was bulldozed away to make space for the ubiquitous car-park.

HI Just for historical interest, my 4th great uncle John Barraclough and his wife Elizabeth ran this pub from the 1850s at least until 1861 and later in the 1870s, the Old Peacock Inn too. They brought at least 7 children up and were buried in St. Pauls, Buttershaw. Thank you for the pictures, its the next best thing to actual portraits of the family themselves. Thanks Sue
