They are believed to have just returned from Kirkstall swimming baths on Kirkstall Road, which was close by. We originally believed the location to be Wolseley Road in Burley but there is now some doubt about this. We would be happy to hear from anyone with any other suggestions.

Gaiety Public House, 89 - 95 Roundhay RoadUndated. View of The Gaiety Public House with boarded windows and the remnants of old advertising posters which date the photograph to c1996. The Gaiety opened officially on 7th December 1972 on the site of the old Gaiety Kinema at the junction of Gathorne Terrace with Roundhay Road. It was designed R. K. Waites of the York architects firm of Waites & Moorey, and built at a cost of £225,000. The site was divided by Gipton Beck and so the Gaiety was designed with a central archway under which the beck ran in a culvert. The two sides of the building were linked by a bridge which housed one of the 5 bars, The Vaudeville Bar. On the ground floor was The Roundhay Public Bar which could accommodate 350 to 400 people; above was The Carousel Bar with a dance floor, juke box and a 17 metre circular bar; also on the ground floor was The Gaiety Bar and Gaiety Restaurant and above these was The Variety Room which provided live entertainment at weekends and offered room hire for private parties and weddings. The decor of The Gaiety was in keeping with that of the Edwardian era. On opening night , actor Stephen Lewis, 'Blakey' in the T.V. situation comedy, 'On The Buses', pulled the first pint. The manager was Mr. Alan Coultas-Brown. The Gaiety was also featured in the David Peace best seller 1974 (part one of the “Red Riding” Quartet). By 1990 The Gaiety had closed its doors for the last time but stood derelict for many years. Leeds City Council demolished it at a cost of £39,000 which included landscaping costs. Now the Archway, a resource centre for 16 - 25 year-olds has been built on the site, set up in 2001 by Leeds City Council with funding from the European Regional Development fund. The services offered include housing support, counselling, advice on education, occupations, drug and mental health issues. There is practical help in the form of laundry and shower facilities.
