This burnt-out building was in Church Street, it had been used for various purposes including a boot factory and a skating rink.
To the right is the Church Institute which was built on the site of Yeadon's first Wesleyan Chapel and was later used as St Andrew's Church Sunday School.
A room in the basement was used for dancing lessons, when the Institute was converted into apartments in 1984 a time capsule was found.
The wall on the right edge was the boundary for the yard belonging to Isaac Croft & Sons, Carriers.

Besides a boot factory and skating rink it was used as a billiard hall where I used to go with my father
In the 50's my wife and I took dancing lessons in the basement and in the 60's we played badminton upstairs
