petrol station was sited. Close to the huge bill board before you got

think is Pauline Widdop. I think her dad had a window cleaning business.
Front row: 5 left Anne Croft. The family were Crofts Hauliers in
Yeadon. There are many others I recognise but their names escape me. I
do hope others will fill in the blanks. We all looked so happy. None of
