Holbeck Towers, Holbeck Moor Road (Holbeck) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows paths, flanked by flower gardens, on Holbeck Moor. The top path runs parallel with Holbeck Moor Road (to the right-hand side of the gardens), and the bottom path follows the line of Elland Road. The two blocks of flats in view are Holbeck Towers. St Matthew's Church is seen towards the left and to the left of the church the Sunday schoolroom is visible through the trees. On the right is the Hope Inn at number 37 Low Moor Side. Eventually, the 1960s scheme for Holbeck Towers was completed with a total of five blocks of high rise flats built on Holbeck Moor Road to accommodate around 400 residents. These are expected to be demolished by 2010 to make way for new housing and regeneration of the area.

Marsh Jones & Cribb Ltd. of 101 Beeston Road, letterhead (Beeston) (4 comments)
Black & White image7th May 1968. This letterhead, taken from a letter of the above date, is that of the firm of Marsh Jones & Cribb Ltd. It was established in 1760 as Marsh Jones, cabinet makers of Leeds and Cavendish Square, London. It was known as Marsh & Jones 'Medieval Cabinet Makers' of Leeds, prior to becoming Marsh Jones & Cribb in 1868. The firm manufactured many pieces of furniture designed by Charles Bevan including the 'New Registered Reclining Chair' and a suite of furniture for Titus Salt Junior for his home near Saltaire in 1865. In 1900, Marsh Jones & Cribb made the oak chancel screen for St. Matthew's Church, Chapel Allerton. During the First World War the firm was manufacturing Camel biplanes. The firm incorporated the painting and decorating business of James Chappell & Son Ltd. who bought the name and goodwill of the company in 1930. It had a reputation as one of the finest painting and decorating businesses in the country. Other images on the Leodis website show workers from the firm painting the reconstructed West Stand at Elland Road Football Ground in 1957. This was following the fire disaster of September 1956 in which the original West Stand was gutted. Marsh Jones & Cribb had the painting contract for the rooms of the Queen's Hotel in 1958, and images have been taken from up on the roof by workers. At the time of this letterhead, Marsh Jones & Cribb were located at Plantation Building, number 101 Beeston Road. They are still a well-known, established firm of painters and decorators, with premises at number 169 Cross Green Lane, Cross Green.
