Looking down Canada Road towards Harrogate Road with a view of the moors on the skyline.


Two years after I was born I lived on Larkfield Ave and this is how I remember Canada Road. My Mum moved there to a weavers cottage near the bottom on right. Half way down was an arch and there was Claughtons (later Mays) off licence and general store. Top of road on right behind phone box was our wonderful fish and chips shop in 70s run by the lovely Mr and Mrs Dennison who lived on Markham Ave went to school with their son Keith who tragically died very young. I worked for Mr Dennison in 1966 when he was manager of Rawson Co-op. Never really appreciated that wonderful backdrop I took it for granted, as we had the highest house on Larkfield and views from my bedroom window were stunning. Thanks for sharing photo
