The AHS Collection 15th October 2021
Square Yeadon 21 years apart 1956 - 1977.
Square before the roundabout was constructed, the building towards
the left was a public lavatory.
Cemetery Road is in the centre,
Crompton Mill can be seen in the background to the right.
The off-licence shop at the corner with Cemetery Road was built with stone salvaged from the demolition of the Pick and Hammer Inn in 1883 at Carlton.
The car is
parked in front of the New Inn, the Albert Inn is on the right edge.
Move forward 21 years what has changed, not too much
- the public lavatory has gone
- the chimney of Crompton Mill has gone
what other changes if any can you spot?
