Abbey Road (Kirkstall) (1 comment)
Black & White image3rd June 1953. Looking north past Norman Mount are three rows of brick built terrace houses. On either corner of De Lacy Mount are grocers shops, both of which have advertising hoardings. The nearest has a large Players cigarette and a Macintosh sweet sign. The other has a M & D (Meredith & Drew) biscuit hoarding as well as a Brooke Bond tea advert on the window. Tram lines run along the road and the electric cables are suspended on iron poles standing on the pavement. Electric streetlamps are just visible on the far left. A car is parked at the nearside kerb.

Morris Lane, postcard (Kirkstall)
Black & White imageUndated. Postcard view looking north-west along Morris Lane. The houses on the left are at the end of a terrace of back-to-backs, with no. 31 Norman Grove nearest the camera and 32 Norman Mount behind. The odd numbered side of Norman Mount is yet to be built so the next houses along are on De Lacy Mount. Taken sometime around the early part of the 20th century.
