A postcard of Briggate (Main Street) (Garforth)
Black & White imageearly 20th century. This view was taken of Briggate in the early twentieth century and became a postcard. On the right is Colliery Row and beyond is Eagle House. Most of the street was still dwellings houses, and the lack of traffic allowed the children to stop and look in the middle of the road.

Main Street (Garforth)
Black & White image1900. This photo was taken at the turn of the century, looking north towards Town End. Far right of the photo, just visible, is Eagle House. In the photo there is no Miners Welfare Hall and the street is mostly house dwellings. The early view of Main Street, formally Briggate, shows an almost empty street. In some of the houses there would have been shops in the front rooms. With the absence of vehicles, this allows the horse and trap to occupy the middle of the road.
