Apperley Bridge Station 1896
|Apperley Bridge Station
A horse drawn bus operated by Powell Midgeley of Yeadon, he had a
stables and livery yard on Yeadon High Street on what was the site of the
Picture House (now The Aviator, September 2014) .
The timed service took passengers to and
from the station via Rawdon to Yeadon and vice versa, Mr Midgeley is the driver
holding the reins with S Power on his left and George Priestley on the
Martin Bairstow added this information:
As far as I can tell, this is after enlargement of
the station in 1901.
Samuel Powell Midgley, cab proprietor of High St Yeadon placed a notice in
the London Gazette of 27 October 1896. William Edward Midgley was no longer a
partner in Midgley Brothers, the business to continue with Samuel Powell
Midgley as sole proprietor.
Maybe this is where the date 1896 comes from.
