The sign advertising the laundry was in the grounds of Armley Liberal club where my father was a steward for many years. There was a fish and chip shop right by the bus stop and often when we got off the bus from town we would be tempted to buy a bag of chips to eat on the way home.

Amazing the memories these pictures bring back. The hoarding peeping out on the builing at the bottom of Beech Drive, where only "OZ" is visible was an advert for OZALID and OZARAPID (which I think were some sort of copying papers.) As a yound child living nearby in Salisbury Avenue, I spent an afternoon watching two men on platforms suspended by ropes painting it. It survived many years.

I seem to remember the laundry vans were custom styled to represent castles with turrets at each corner. This was something connected with their advertising slogan, but I'm blowed if I can remember what it was. I talking about the years 1937/41

I used to go to Castleton School and would get off at this bus stop if we were flush and my mum could afford to give me a penny for the fare (a rareity) This fish & chip shop would be packed out and was open at dinnertimes as well as nights. There was a boy in my class callled Peter Kirkbright, a nice lad, wonder if he was related ? Is the building still there I wonder ?
