Harrogate Road - 1957
A postcard view of Harrogate Road looking towards Rawdon crossroads.
The newsagents advertising the Daily Mail is still today a newsagents and general store (2021),
In the centre is Addy's outfitters, the adjoining shop has the name Rawnsley's above the window.
The little snicket on the left hand side of the cottages was where you could go down to the cinema, and further down to New Road Side

I remember so well running up and down that snicket and alo rode my bike down there when you got to the Temp there was another snicket across the road that took you parallel with the park into the fields at the back.
The bottom photo the building between Rawnsleys bakers and Teales is a bank think it was Barclays? and between Addy's and the lights was the Post Office and if you went upstairs by the very narrow steep steps there was a gentlemans barbers. Between Teals and Rigg's butchers was Lawrence(Lorrie) Denbeigh shoe shop and repairers
Great photos thanks for sharing them

Teales shop newsagents and home made ice cream after the war it was a treat to watch Mrs Teale making it in front of your eyes. Next was Rawnsleys ( I think that it was a branch of the Yeadon shop) which came later as before it had been the Post Office run by Mr Pullan and then it moved further down. After Addys there are two semis set back, the left hand side one was a hairdressers run by Mrs Lily Dearing. Then the new post office after the war, but before that I can remember buying sweets there and stationary. Eventually Addy's extended and it is now three shops.20 January 2014
