"Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club, 1913 to 1914 Winners
Description:
1913. Image shows the players and members of "Bus Vale" (Buslingthorpe) Rugby League Football Club as they proudly pose with their winning trophies and shield. They are pictured in front of what was then the premises of Wine & Spirit Retailer, Isaac Taylor, of number 240 Meanwood Road, located between the junctions of Firnley Street and Buslingthorpe Green. This was known as the Junction Hotel. In the 1920s "Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club transferred to their new home ground, the former site of Rowley's quarry which closed in 1916 and was subsequently filled-in. On the right, with dark hair parted down the centre and crouched on one knee, is John Charles Hill who was born in 1890. He worked as a currier at one of the local tanneries (possibly Buslingthorpe Tannery - Broadhead & Conyers). Any more information regarding the history of the team and identification of anyone in the picture is welcomed.

Isaac Taylor had briefly been the licensee of the Acorn Inn, Leeds & Bradford Road, Bramley [from February 1891 through until 25th September the same year]. The license of the Junction transferred to him on the same day [25th September 1891] his predecessor, Joseph Pool, moving further down Meanwood Road to the Bay Horse Inn, Spa Buildings. Isaac stayed as the licensee of the Junction until 23rd April 1921 when he died. The premises were certainly known as the Junction in 1872 and the Licensing Register from that year identifies the pub as such.

At least 3 of my mother's (Woodhead) brothers played for "Bus Vale" in the late 1920's/early 1930's. They're pictured on another Leodis photo ref:2010125_170070. I'd love to know of any other players names on this or that photo.
