Harehills Road, nos.11-29 (Harehills)
Colour imageJuly 1981. View of Harehills Road near the junction with Roundhay Road, showing, from left, nos. 11-29. Shops visible include J. & L. Rogerson, newsagents, sweets & tobacco, Brian Stewart's childrens wear and lingerie and M.C. & J. Fashions. All are boarded up due to riots which had been taking place in the area during a time of nationwide unrest. Police cars had been overturned in Chapeltown and this had become a no-go area, though some of the shops were trying to remain open as usual. Photograph courtesy of Stephen Howden.

Main Street (Garforth) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Now the site of Pease's car park, the police station of Garforth stood near the top of Main Street. The station was once in the charge of Sgt. Gallimore, and in the 1980's the force moved to the new premises on Lidgett Lane, but in 2001 this was designated for police cars only. The shops next door to the police station were known to be the Co-op buildings, which still stand today, though no longer the Co-op. There were three Co-op shops next to each other. Nearest the police station was the grocery. The manager was Mr. Simpson. Next was the butchers and furthest from the police staton came the drapery dept. The manager was known to be Mr. Harold Kilburn.
