Comment
The street once led to playing fields where local lads played football.
Mr Bernard Snee, a male nurse, lived in the house at the end of the row and decided to paint a football on his gable end wall.
Painted in black and white, it measures 14 foot in diameter and took Mr Snee a month to paint using a wooden frame with sections made of hardboard and cardboard to mark out the segments.
It has become a Yeadon landmark, other residents have given their homes names such as "Offside", "Hat Trick" and "Left Back".

I remember watching him paint it on the wall. It was fascinating to watch and the end result was superb.
