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.

A Remnant of Old Briggate, postcard (City Centre) (8 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. This postcard, entitled 'A Remnant of Old Briggate', shows no. 56, one of the oldest buildings on Briggate. It was built in 1613 by Richard Sykes, who became an Alderman of Leeds in 1629, having been a key figure in the campaign for the granting of Leeds' Charter of Incorporation in 1626. The building is occupied here by F. Wallis, hosier and glover; the words 'Ye Olde Stone Shoppe' are seen above the name, and a panel above this says 'RS1613'. It was taken over by Timpsons's Shoes in 1919 and demolished by them in 1955 to make way for a new shop. The entrance to the Pack Horse Inn Yard is incoporated into the building on the left.
