The horse and cart on the left of the top photo. would have been outside Emsleys grocery store. As well as selling a range of groceries, the popular store sold flour that was milled at the back of the shop. The horse and cart would have been used to collect grain for milling from farmers and delivering sacks of flour to homes and bakeries, along with groceries. I was told by the late Margaret Emsley that her father, Roy traded at the Leeds Corn Exchange. The shop became a small engineering works before being converted into a residential property in the 1990's.
