Between the painter and decorators and the capel is a ginnel which led to a house lived in by Ma Bragg in the 40's and 50's. ( I believe she looked after the chapel). I lived in Playfair Street and my father had the fish shop on Lower Carr Street _ It was often called Braggs as Ma Bragg was a relative. I also attended Sunday School at the chapel

seeing this lovely picture of the church brought lots of memories back.The insidr of the church was beautiful, lots of wood carvings and solid wood pews what a shame to have to demolish such a lovely building.I went to the chapel from 1952 onwards and collected quite a few story books for good attendance as my brother and I were expected to go from a very early age.I was Rose Queen attendant in 1957 and we wore lemon, the rose queen was called Ann and her little brother was a page, we then went to the Town Hall with lots of other queens from all around Leeds.Later on I went to the youth club which was held at the back of the church, anyone remember the youth club?

I remember this church very well. I went to the youth club also with my schoolfriend, June Firth, who lived in Telford Terrace. She, too, was a Rose Queen at this church.

My mother attended the Carr Chapel, as it was called, as a young girl, and the then minister, the Rev F P Argall, a Cornishman, I believe, Officiated at her wedding. My mother lived in nearby Arthington Grove, and was called Rhoda Thorpe.
