|||Bondgate, south side (Otley)
|c Nov-Dec 1976.
View shows the south side of Bondgate, looking from the junction with Kirkgate, with Station Road leading up towards The Chevin on the right. On the corner, at no.1 Bondgate, is Maxine's hair stylists and beauticians. Next follows a group of Grade II listed buildings numbered 3-9; 3 is Britton's provisions, 5 and 7 are private dwellings and 9 is Bondgage Fisheries. These date from the mid 18th century, with the year 1753 marked above the door of no.5; no.3 is reputed to have once been the home of Thomas Chippendale. To the left of the photo is Bondgate House, home of the Department of Health and Social Security.

The cinema opened on 5th August 1920 with a showing of 'Master of my Fate', and closed on 16th May 1965 with 'Hell to Eternity' starring Vic Damone. The premises are now demolished. Down Cold Well Road is a semi detached house with bay windows with stained glass.

Image shows stone built premises forming part of the Royal Hotel in Station Road, Morley Bottoms. For 1970s views of the property see Leodis images 2006118_160381, 2005127_160084 and 2007119_162728, when at that time this building was occupied by the butcher, William Crosby. We would be particularly interested to know the origins of the lettering on the lintels above the window and door which read; "The Devonshire Pub" followed by a break and then "Co Ltd." If you can throw any light on this then we would welcome your comments. Image supplied by Graham Schofield.
