I used to work at Monk Bridge just through the bridge, I used to walk down to work from Victoria Place at the top of Skillbeck Street, then after the bridge is Procters wire works. Then Pettys printers. If you walked down past Pettys there is a tunnel leading to Holbeck station.

As you can see Petty's building has no roof on, this would be from bomb damage, Petty's took a hit and the rolls of paper were taken out on the street's by the Fire Men and they were smoldering for days after.

I was born at 32 Whitehall Road - does anyone know which part of the photo would be No 32? I lived next door to the Goodman Arms - long since demolished. My Grandparents (Joe and Honora) Sunter owned a tobacco and fishing tackle shop. I moved to Bramley in 1968 at the age of 4. David Watson

Dave if you look at image 2002813_29356020 this is the Goodman at the right hand side is some shrubbery, this is about where No. 32 would have been. I remember a row of cottage type houses and a shop facing down Springwell Street between the factories and the pub, unfortunately there does not appear to be any photos on the site but I shall keep looking.
