|||Harrogate Road, postcard (Chapel Allerton)
Postcard view of Harrogate Road showing the Mexborough Arms on the left. This public house had been known as The Bowling Green in the nineteenth century. In the 1920s a new Mexborough Arms was built to the side of it and this one was demolished. The new pub is now (2011) known as The Three Hulats. Further along, the terraced houses in the centre background are on Methley Drive. Two trams are seen on the road.

The Mexborough Arms, sometimes called the Bowling Green. It was famous for the size of the bowling green. The licensee is James Hill, a horse drawn cab is in the road. Plans for a new public house began in 1924 and a replacement was completed by 1928. The original building doubled as a polling station in the early 1920s.

Situated at number 13 Harrogate Road. This building from 1925 replaced an earlier inn also called the Mexborough Arms which had previously been called the Bowling Green. It was built on land which had been part of the estate of the Earl of Mexborough. It had reputedly the largest bowling green in Yorkshire. This survived until 1978when the site became a car park. It was later redeveloped as a supermarket which opened in June, 1994.
