Carr Lane, looking across to terraced houses in Victoria Place (Little London)
Black & White image28th October 1938. View from Carr Lane showing a row of substantial terraced houses, with bay windows, behind a high stone wall and located in Victoria Place. The junction with Victoria Grove can be seen towards the left. Further to the far left are the junctions with Primrose Street and Reuben Street. Carr Lane is paved with stone setts and there is a street lamp on the pavement. Written on the bottom of the photograph is 'Property Offered by Mosleys on Behalf of Mrs J. L. Renton.' There may be a connection, with the name of Renton, to Tom Renton who was once a shopkeeper at numbers 8-10 Carr Lane, not far from the junction with Reuben Street. Left of centre the small building is a shop which was once the local dairy run by the Gill family until about 1939 when the area was cleared. (Directory of Leeds for 1932 - Mrs Sarah Ellen Gill, Milk Dealer, numbers 11-13 Carr Lane). A sign on the high brick wall advertises the firm of Juan Flooring Ltd, Mosaic and Terrazzo Composition. They moved premises to Ashton Road, Leeds 8 when the area was demolished.
