View shows the Commercial Inn situated on Churwell Hill, Elland Road. When the inn was first built, the old road ran by what is now the back door of the pub. This situation changed when the new road was built, which left the front door elevated from the pavement and highway. It is believed that Bobby Peel, the Yorkshire and England cricketer, erected the steps by the door when he was the landlord around 1900. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
