The man in the picture is George Batchelor who lived at number 30 Alexander Crescent, a through house also addressed as 75 Hyde Park Road. He is leaning against the rear gates of a branch of Leeds Industrial Co-operative Society, fronting Hyde Park Road at numbers 77 and 79. These rear gates are at number 32 Alexander Crescent. The co-op cellars were used as an air-raid shelter during the Second World War, as indicated by the signage on the gates. In the background is Westfield Works where H. Garnett's shoulder pad manufacturing business was based. The firm also had premises at St. Andrew's Works in Westfield Road, Burley.
