Field near Lister Cottages & St. Bernard's Railway Station, planting cauliflowers (Gildersome) (2 comments)
Colour imageJune 1960. Image shows a three man team riding behind a tractor planting cauliflowers in a field near Lister Cottages, by St. Bernard's (Gildersome) railway station. More rows of vegetables can be seen between the railway line and Gelderd Road (A62) seen in the distance. One of the terraces next to St. Bernard's Mill can be seen in the top right hand corner. Railway sidings here are stocked with carriages. The black wooden goods shed appears to be in use and certainly material is being stored in the yard around it.

Morley Top Station from the Fountain Street Railway Bridge (Morley) (2 comments)
Colour imageMay 1965. View of Morley Top Station from the Fountain Street Railway Bridge in May 1965. The layout of the track is still complete although passenger services using the station had ceased in 1961. Freight, especially coal, came into the station yard until 1969, but had stopped running to Gildersome and Drighlington, beyond Morley, before this. Two water towers, the old goods shed and some coal unloading points can be seen, together with the positions of the two platforms close to the High Street bridge. Originally on the Great Northern Railway, Morley Top Station was opened in 1858. The three main destinations going eastwards were: London, on the Bradford portion of the Kings Cross-Leeds expresses, east coast resorts like Bridlington, Scarborough and Cleethorpes and Leeds via. Tingley and Beeston. Going westwards the line descended into Bradford Exchange Station via. Drighlington and Laisterdyke. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Wellington Street at the junction with Northern Street, British Railways Goods Yard (City Centre)

There are goods sheds on either side of the yard and a hoist in the background. The small building on the right is number 37 Wellington Street. These buildings were all part of the Central Station complex on a site between Whitehall Road and Wellington Street. This later became the site of the Royal Mail Headquarters and Aireside Retail Park. At the time of the image various businesses operated from here. There is a sigh for W. Reynard & Co. Ltd., wholesale Wine and Spirits. Northern Street is on the opposite side of Wellington Street to Queen Street.
