wish I could get a copy of this photo. I have just spent time remembering where everyone lived and where we used to play.Only a pity that my house was just off the right hand edge.
It must have been taken in the late thirties / early forties as I remember the houses on "Sandy Way" being demolished. They had balconies ( a great novelty ) overlooking the Temperance Hall. There were so many demolished buildings in that wartime period. It left great places to have dens. What would "Health and Safety " make of that these days

I too have spent time looking at Yeadon as it was when I was running around the streets and fields in my childhood .The house where I was born and the houses where I and my uncles ,aunties,great aunties, grandparents and great grandparents lived and the school as it was then and most striking of all was to see a line of washing strung across the street from my house to my uncle jacks house what marvellous memories ,Thanks Carlo
