Lowtown, number 86, former tripe shop and works belonging to Job Ross (Pudsey)
Colour image1981. View of the former tripe shop and works belonging to Job Ross and situated at number 86 Lowtown. The butchers in the locality drove their beasts from Leeds Market, often on a Tuesday, and carried out their own slaughtering on a Wednesday. The tripe was collected by horse and cart from each butcher and brought here to be processed. It was usually ready to sell by Friday evening. Job Ross, or 'Tripey Ross' as he was known locally, had a small wooden hut in the Market Place and another shop in Lidget Hill. He was baptised Job Andrew Ross in 1902 and married woollen weaver, Irene Harrison in 1937. These premises are now demolished but for many years the old tripe baths stood in front of the leisure centre and were used as planters. Due to the building of the new bus station the tripe baths have had to be moved. The group, 'Pudsey in Bloom' have arranged for them to be put into storage courtesy of Farnac Building Supplies until a new home for them can be found. Wharrels Road is seen on the left.

Lowtown, number 86, former tripe works belonging to Job Ross (Pudsey)
Colour image1981. View of the now demolished former tripe works which was once the property of Job Ross, known locally as 'Tripey Ross'. He was born in Pudsey in 1902 and married woollen weaver, Irene Harrison, in 1937. He would collect the tripe by horse and cart from individual butchers within the town and process it here each week. The tripe baths used to wash and clean the tripe found a new lease of life in later years as planters, used by the group 'Pudsey in Bloom'. They stood in front of the Leisure Centre but are currently in storage due to the construction of the new bus station. Job Ross bought vinegar in 5 gallon barrels and mustard in 7lb quantities. To the left is Wharrels Road and there is a small garden in front of the premises, which are numbered 86 Lowtown. It is now the site of Clifton Place.

Staff from Craven Dairies Garage on a Works Day Out (Unknown) (1 comment)
Black & White image1951. Image shows a smiling group of people standing beside a coach as they take part in their works trip to Morecambe. These are the staff of Craven Dairies garage, pictured with family members. The Craven Dairies garage was located at the top of Holborn Street, but it is not clear where the photograph was taken. A sign in the background appears to read "Royal Oak Hotel". The little boy in the foreground, who looks a little fed-up, is Vance Johnson, who kindly supplied us with the image!
