Charley Cake Park, tinted postcard (Armley) (1 comment)
Colour imagec1907. Tinted postcard view of Charley Cake Park, (the formal name was Whingate Park.) This was originally a patch of waste ground owned by the Gott family who exchanged it for a plot of land owned by the township, located in Redcote Lane. Charley Cake Park is said to be named after a Pudsey man who hawked his cakes around Armley. One was a special, large triangular cake which was a favourite amongst his customers. Therefore, the three cornered park was christened Charley Cake by local residents. It is bordered by Town Street, Whingate and Springfield Mount with Whingate on the left and Town Street running across the background. West Leeds High School, in Whingate, is just off camera, left.
