Asda Queens Supermarket, formerly Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel, Fountain Street (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageOctober 1968. View of the former Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel in Fountain Street shortly after it had been renovated and turned into a shop and offices for the Asda Queens supermarket. In comparison to an earlier image on the Leodis website, it is possible to see that the steps and wall which separated the chapel from the causeway have been considerably altered and the trees removed. The carving has been effaced from the pediment and the memorial stones at the base of the four pillars in front of the chapel. When Asda's new supermarket and offices on the Howley Park Estate were ready, about 1970, the firm then moved up there. This building was sold to Phillip's auctioneers for nearly twenty years, and then it was bought by Handyman's Stores. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Crossgate, Presto (Otley)
Black & White imagec Nov-Dec 1976. View looking from the bus station (as it was then) towards Presto supermarket on Crossgate. When Presto moved to larger premises on Burras Lane (now Waitrose) around 1988 this building for a time became the Inshops, a collection of small retail outlets under one roof. Half of the building had become Netto supermarket by 1991; the other half remained as small units until being taken over by Argos catalogue store in the mid 1990s. Around 2009 Netto moved out to new premises on Cross Green, but Argos is still there today (2013) along with the Original Factory Shop department store.
