Somewhere in among this row of shops there was a barbers' shop run by a father and son. The father, Giovanni Caschetto was a Sicilian. I think that his son, Paulo was born in England. I started going there when I was around sixteen or seventeen in the mid-1950's, and kept with them until they were forced to close when the whole row was hit with a demolition order. I seem to remember that they were one of the last businesses to leave. I'm not sure but I think that it was sometime in the back end of the last decade of the 20th century. I lost track of them after that. Does anyone know if somewhere in Leeds, the Caschettos are still cutting hair?

Graham I vaguely remember a barbers being on that row as I mentioned above, our bus home from school (Headingley to Beeston) used to stop outside here almost every night. This was the service Number 1 or number 4. The shop will have been knocked down around the late 80's/early 90's I reckon. Dont know if it's the same family but there used to be an Italian Barber just over Leeds Bridge next door to where the Italian Job restaurant was. Could he have moved there I wonder?

In response to a previous comment: the surgery of Dr Mary Wainman was right at the top of Meadow Lane, where it joined the bottom of Dewsbury Road. Dr Wainman was our family doctor (as a child I was very scared of her!) It was indeed dark and dingy, just a small square waiting room with lino on the floor and chairs all round the edge. No 'reception desk', just wait to be called. That was in the '50s and early '60s. Dr Wainman and her newly arrived colleague, Dr Colin Watson, subsequently moved to a larger premises further up Dewsbury Road.
