Description:

A couple can be seen walking in front of a small single storey building which is now Archery Stores. The boundary walls of All Souls Church are opposite, seen at the right edge. The red brick terraced houses on the right are now demolished and the site is now Blackman Lane Park with sports ground and playground.

To the left is the shop built in to the end of the terrace that makes up Blenheim Square. The little building was a taxi office now a take away.

The wall on the right belongs to All Soul's Church. I was married here in 1972. There is a bus stop where I used to catch the number 62 circular bus to town. On the left is a tiny, one room, shop owned by a lady called Lilian. She sold a variety of things, mainly clothes and she took in alterations. There was a post office on the left over the road junction. Facing it on the right hand side was a shop.

The shop run by lilian sold used comics , you could buy 3/4 rolled up and secured with an elastic band for a few pence.On the left hand side just beyond the small shop there used to be a post office ,on the opposite side of the road to the right of the picture,there used to be an off licence on one side and what we called "the dairy" although it sold pop and sweets ,i don't know why us kids called it that.lilian by the way goes to a luncheon club in headingley,i found that bit of info out as i'm a member of Leedsface,and a lady on there still lives in the area,and helps out at the lunch club .
