I'd like to thank whoever was responsible for this photo of Yeadon in my childhood ,It's wonderful to see the etreets
Where I ran free as a child and the houses where i was born and lived tinto my teenage years.I was born on the Green in the house at right angles to the"Oddfellows arms" and lived at times in Howarth Lane , and later in Varleys Fold and went to the pictures and pantomimes at the Temperance hall.and also went to Sunday School in a room underneath the picture house, when the picture ended we would rush up to Walt Claphams Fish shop for a bag of chips or to Machells Pea shop for a plate of peas.,Wonderful to see the old shops where we went shopping,,Archie Marshall's fish shop and next door the green grocers ,Shuttleworth's Butchers,Nancy Flesher's Dress shop ,Donny Whites Papershop I can still name all the families who lived in Varleys Fold and some of the
Pweople who lived in harper terrace .This has made me very Happy Many thanks Carlo .
