"Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club, 1913 to 1914 Winners (Buslingthorpe) (4 comments)
Black & White image1913. Image shows the players and members of "Bus Vale" (Buslingthorpe) Rugby League Football Club as they proudly pose with their winning trophies and shield. They are pictured in front of what was then the premises of Wine & Spirit Retailer, Isaac Taylor, of number 240 Meanwood Road, located between the junctions of Firnley Street and Buslingthorpe Green. This was known as the Junction Hotel. In the 1920s "Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club transferred to their new home ground, the former site of Rowley's quarry which closed in 1916 and was subsequently filled-in. On the right, with dark hair parted down the centre and crouched on one knee, is John Charles Hill who was born in 1890. He worked as a currier at one of the local tanneries (possibly Buslingthorpe Tannery - Broadhead & Conyers). Any more information regarding the history of the team and identification of anyone in the picture is welcomed.

1880s poster, Emanuel Mortimer's grocery store, Lowtown (Pudsey)
Black & White imagec1880s. Black and white poster advertising some of the many groceries on sale at Emanuel Mortimer's shop in the 1880s. These include dried fruits and tinned fruit in syrup. There are tinned meats, including 2lb tins of finest boiled rabbit for 1s and 1d, and fish, like lobster at 7½d for a 1lb tin. Fresh butter is supplied twice a week and comes from Denmark and Ireland. There are several brands of soap, varying in price and quality. Pears soap, a glycerine based soap, first produced by Andrew Pears in 1789, can still be purchased today although the formula has changed over the years. Emanuel Mortimer had two grocer's shops, both located in Lowtown and referred to as the 'top' and 'bottom' shop. The one advertised in this poster is the bottom shop, situated at the corner with Crimbles Road (nowadays Kent Road). It catered more for the working classes while the top shop, at the junction with Hammerton Fold, later to be known as Booth's Yard, attracted customers from the middle classes. Image and information courtesy of John Garnett.

7th Lord Mayor's Parade, Woodhouse Moor showing a young participant (City Centre)
Colour image21st June 1980. Image taken during the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade which started from Woodhouse Moor. The little girl, in her fancy costume, is seated on the float entered by Lewis's department store depicting a steam engine of the American West. The engine is constructed using bales of straw, but on the outside it was completely covered in over 20,000 ribbon bows in red, green and gold. The little girl wears a sequinned, layered net skirt and a silver cape trimmed with swansdown. She carries a wand with silver bells, beads and trailing white ribbons. It was a cold, showery day but a successful one for Lewis's as the store won 'The Lord's Mayor's Award for the Best Overall Entry.
