"Bus Vale" Rugby League Football Club, 1913 to 1914 Winners (Buslingthorpe) (4 comments)
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.

The large, four-storey mill building, right of centre, is Perseverance Mills. Behind it is the block of high-rise flats, Holborn Towers in Shay Street. They were built in 1965 to a height of 47 metres on seventeen storeys.

Buslingthorpe Vale, no. 12 (Buslingthorpe) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of property on Buslingthorpe Vale, off Buslingthorpe Lane. The building to the right is no. 12, occupying what looks like two separate houses. Just visible on the right hand edge is part of no. 13. Both properties share a large area of land enclosed by a wall, with a pair of outside toilets to be seen. Also on the right is a large hen house; the keeping of poultry was encouraged, eggs were a valuable food during war-time rationing restrictions and the immediate post-war period. In the background are a tall block comprising nos. 3, 2 and 1 in the centre, and another block containing nos. 20, 21, 22 and 23 on the left. The contrast of industrial and rural landscape can be seen here, this was around the early to mid 1950s.
