Lowtown, from the junction with Manor House Street (Pudsey)
Colour image26th May 1990. View of Lowtown, from the junction with Manor House Street, foreground, right. Old stone built shop and business premises occupy both sides of Lowtown. On the left, at number 20, is 'Jack & Jill' specialising in children’s wear. Adjacent, at number 22, is Homelife, and next to it the entrance to Booth's Yard, (formerly Hammerton Fold). The yard takes its name from the Booth family, who ran a grocery business at number 22, after the mid nineteenth century and well into the 20th century. James Booth (1844-1914) was listed here on the census of 1881 with his wife Louisa and children, Annie Louise, Sarah Edith and James Cecil. A sign, placed at the entrance to Booth's Yard, advertises the World's End, a wine bar and restaurant converted from a pair of very old houses situated at the top. It opened in 1983. Both numbers 20 and 22 Lowtown and the whole of Booth's Yard are Grade II listed. Image and information courtesy of John Garnett.
