Aberford Road, the Dixon family in front of the Toll Bar House (Garforth)
Black & White imageUndated. Early image showing the Dixon family grouped in front of the Toll Bar House in Aberford Road. They were the last tollkeepers of the Toll Bar House prior to its demoliton. The family are believed to be, from left to right, Alfred Dixon, Annie Lobley (nee Dixon), Sam and Edgar Hodgkinson, Lucy Hodgkinson (sister to Mrs. Dixon), Mrs. Dixon and Helen Dennison. Mrs. Dixon was said to have come to live at Toll Bar House as a new bride. When Aberford Road was a Toll Road a traveller would make a payment here to continue the journey. The Toll Bar stood opposite Bar Lane and is now the site of the Toll Bar Garage. The Dixon family left here to live at Bank House at Town End. Harry Strangeways moved into the Toll Bar House and built the first garage on the site.
