Black & White imageUndated. Image shows street decorations in North view, Westerton Road. The photograph is inscribed with the name G.M. Whitlam, an East Ardsley photographer. This is obviously a time of celebration and there are large letters on the walls of the houses spelling a message part of which can be discerned to read 'Success to the . . . '. The clothes of the residents may date the occasion to the 1930s. Any further information would be welcome. Image used courtesy of Peter Aldred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Prices Tailors Ltd., celebrity visit of film star, Patricia Medina (Burley) (6 comments)
Black & White imageEarly 1960s. Image shows some of the female workforce of John Collier's (remembered by many as Prices Tailors Ltd. although it was sold in 1954) as they cluster around celebrity and glamorous film star, Patricia Medina, who has dressed for her visit in a silk headscarf and fur coat. Standing to the left of her is Emily Bean, wearing a patterned knitted waistcoat. The actress expressed a liking for Emily's waistcoat and chose to be seated at her sewing machine station while signing autographs. Another smiling member of staff in the foreground, wearing a floral pinafore, awaits her turn and is holding a photograph of Miss Medina. Patricia Medina (1919-2012) starred in films from the late 1930s until the late 1970s with the majority of her roles being in the 1950s. These included the 'Siren of Bagdad' (1953) and the 'Beast of Hollow Mounain' (1956). She had a part in "The Killing of Sister George' in 1968. She was married twice, to actor, Richard Greene (of Robin Hood fame) from 1941 to 1951, and to actor, Joseph Cotten in 1960. Prices Tailors Ltd./John Collier's was a well-known local landmark (the factory was established here in 1923). It was located off Kirkstall Road in Cardigan Crescent / Lennox Road. The site is now that of Cardigan Fields Leisure and Entertainment Complex.

Black & White image1913. Image shows the players and members of "Bus Vale" (Buslingthorpe) Rugby League Football Club as they proudly pose with their winning trophies and shield. They are pictured in front of what was then the premises of Wine & Spirit Retailer, Isaac Taylor, of number 240 Meanwood Road, located between the junctions of Firnley Street and Buslingthorpe Green. This was known as the Junction Hotel. In the 1920s "Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club transferred to their new home ground, the former site of Rowley's quarry which closed in 1916 and was subsequently filled-in. On the right, with dark hair parted down the centre and crouched on one knee, is John Charles Hill who was born in 1890. He worked as a currier at one of the local tanneries (possibly Buslingthorpe Tannery - Broadhead & Conyers). Any more information regarding the history of the team and identification of anyone in the picture is welcomed.
