Belle Isle Cottages nos. 1, 2 (Belle Isle) (1 comment)
Black & White image8th June 1950 Image shows two brick built cottages with sash windows. This row helped make up the hamlet of Old Belle Isle, a simple row of cottages built by Brandling in 1793-4 as housing for colliery workers. With no gas or electricity the rooms were lit by parafin lamps and hotwater supplied by whatever could be boiled on the fire in kettles and pans. The only entrance to the village is via rough tracks making regular coal deliveries in winter an impossibility. In the image a young man sits in the doorway of the cottage. On the left while outside a bicycle leans against a paving stone.

Booth's Yard in the snow (Pudsey)
Colour image1981. Image shows Booth's Yard under a covering of deep snow, taken in the winter of 1981 from the junction with Lowtown. Booth's Yard was named after the Booth family who owned a grocery business at number 22 Lowtown at the corner with the yard, and which is partially seen in the foreground, left. James Booth came to run the shop here in about 1867. The yard was originally known as Hammerton Fold and is the site of several very old buildings, now Grade II listed. Next to Booth's shop on the west side of Booth's Yard is a pair of very old cottages, numbering 1 & 2 Booth's Yard; part of one is thought to date from the early 17th century. James Booth had doorways knocked through between his shop and the first house, on each floor, so that it could be used to provide stock rooms. For years the second house was referred to as 'the wash house'. The first house has a large vaulted cellar and a well. During renovations of the properties in Booth's Yard evidence of Medieval construction has been discovered, including a wooden sill or lintel with three sockets for mullions. On the east side of Booth's Yard, the single storey building, number 4, is thought to date back to the late 17th century. Behind it is a weaver's cottage on two storeys. A ladder would originally have led to the upper storey where the large window is visible. This would have provided daylight for weaving, on possibly two handlooms. All these listed properties in Booth's Yard were acquired in 1980 by Moss Fold Homes. They were painstakingly restored to form a quant enclave of shops and businesses, including the World's End Bar and restaurant which opened in 1983.

Briggate, central reservation, watercolour painting by Pete Lapish (City Centre) (3 comments)
Colour imagec1954. Watercolour painting by Pete Lapish showing the central reservation in Briggate, looking in the direction of the Headrow. A queue of people are seen boarding the tram at the end where the driver is stationed. Although the central reservation has safety barriers for the boarding passengers a woman passenger is forced to alight from the rear of the tram and will have to negotiate the traffic. This tram is on route 2, a circular route. Route 2 travels up Chapeltown Road to Moortown Corner and back to the city centre via. Roundhay Park. The Horsfield tram on route 4, background, right, is heading for Kirkstall. Pete Lapish is inspired by his nostalgia for the Leeds tramways of his boyhood, when on dark, windy evenings in the winter the lamps would sway from the wires, casting huge shadows. He uses various sources to make accurate studies of Leeds street scenes from different periods. The sports shop of Thornton & Co Ltd., seen on the left at numbers 50 & 51 Briggate, holds particular memories for him as he used to covet the tennis raquets in the window near the tram stop. Adjacent, at numbers 52 & 53 Briggate, is Manfield & Sons Ltd., boot and shoe makers. More of Pete Lapish's images can be seen on his website www.petelapish.art

Bruntcliffe Crossroads, Old Angel Inn (Morley) (10 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of the The Old Angel Inn at Bruntcliffe crossroads early in the 20th century. In the days of horse and packhorse transport the Old Angel was situated in an excellent position at the crossroads of two turnpike roads - the Wakefield and Bradford Road shown here passing the front of the inn and the Leeds and Elland Road passing the side. This inn would be on the highest piece of land in the area hence the need for a water tank to catch the rainfall. The bucket on the side of the inn could be for watering draft horses. The main door is in the two storey building and near it are some mounting steps. The building behind the inn is Stephenson's Bruntcliffe Mill probably built about 1880. Behind the Old Angel in the early part of the 19th century were some corn stacks and provision for some livestock. This is said to be the scene of a remarkable event. The landlord called Helliwell had had an argument with a person called Vickers. During a winter's evening there was a fire to the corn stacks. Helliwell suspected Vickers but could not prove it. However there had been a dusting of snow and this enabled Helliwell to trace through distinctive footsteps someone who had been in the stack yard at the Old Angel to a house in Beeston and this turned out to be Vickers. He admitted to the arson and his punishment for this was seven year's transportation to Australia. This took place about 1824. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
