This picture is a lot later than 1960 as my best Friends house on the right half way down the street has been demolished. I would say thi id late 60s early 70s. Mick McCarthy started up his removal business on this street on the streets to the left which have been demolished. I remember washing his van as a child. His business went from strength to strength and is now based on the site of the old Meanwood baths on Meanwood road.

This is definitely late 60's even early 70's as we left this street in summer '72 and all of the houses on the right were gone by then.I distinctly remember the progressive clearance of all the streets that ran perpendicular to Grosvenor Avenue and in fact we still lived there as they began to put the new sewer systems for what would eventually become the "Little London" estate .If it was as early as suggested there would be Gable ends of houses on the right , the Lomonds, from whicj people used to string their washing lines right across Grosvenor Avenue. Mick McCarthy's large furniture removal lorries used to some times come down the street and bring down these washing lines down and enrage the people that lived on the street. In the fore ground on the opposite corner to the fish and chip shop there used to be an Asian shop where they kept live chickens in wire cages in the walled yard you can see on the left of the street. It was there right up until we left.

I can asure that this photo was taken when stated. I lived at No. 10 Wellclose Terrace and migrated to Australia in March 1963, long after the photo was taken.

I have to agree with the Branigans. I lived at 39 Wellclose Terrace (there was no space between well and close)from 1959. This was on the same side as the chip shop but much further right from the photo - the end terrace coming up from Carlton Hill/Road. In about 1969/1970 I got off a bus on Meanwood Road and walked home up this street to turn onto Wellclose Terrace, only to be attacked almost outside my own front door! I'm quite sure there was a full row of houses there that night! Also on this site is a pic of back Wellclose Terrace, looks to have been taken from behind the house that was opposite where I lived - someone called Ewan has put on there that he lived at number 10 - which was down towards Carlton Road!!
