Stocks Hill, Lower Town Street (Bramley)
Black & White image15th September 1933. View of Stocks Hill on Lower Town Street, with railings edging the perimeter. The railings top a now Grade 2 listed wall with two recesses, one which houses a drinking trough and the other a cast iron water pump with a lion-mask handle and tray. The stone built run of shops and businesses on the left is occupied by numbers 145 to 147. The first one, at number 145, is Mrs Josephine Greaves, Milliner, followed by Miss Isa Busfield's Butcher's shop at number 145A. Next, at number 147A, is the Dunkirk Photographic Studio belonging to James Blakey followed by the Leeds Permanent Building Society at number 147 (with pedimented entrance and wall-mounted sign). After these shops the building with chimney is the end one(number 155) of a row of three-storey houses, running at right angles to Stocks Hill, and now demolished. (Numbers 153 and 155 appear to have once been part of a large Georgian house.) The row numbered 149 to 155 Lower Town Street. There is a painted sign advertising the Unicorn Inn for 'Beer, Wines and Spirits' on the gable end of a pair of cottages. These cottages were demolished in 1936 to allow for the road improvements to Bramley Town Street and the occupants were re-housed. The Unicorn Inn is situated behind all these properties, at right angles to Stocks Hill, and is not in view). In the background the gable end with arched window is also now demolished and has a sign pointing across Lower Town Street to the Sunshine Laundry in Wilson Place. Other shops and businesses are visible on the east side of Lower Town Street, right, and these include Ben Procter, China Dealer at number 158.

Black & White image23rd March, 1960. View of the rear of the Sunshine Laundry situated in Wilson Place off Lower Town Street. Before the existance of such laundries washing was a very arduous task to be carried out in the home. Housewives were able to take their wet washing to 'Mangling Houses' however, and for a small charge water was extracted by huge rollers. The Sunshine Laundry was established in 1931 by J.W. Taylor and E.E. Taylor and employed 18 workers offering three separate services.
