Top: This photo was taken during an unseasonable downpour which caused flooding.
In the centre is a West Yorkshire Road Car Co. bus en-route to Otley, service no 50. On the left but not in view is the Woolpack Inn, the low building was used by the Air Cadets.
The stone building with the apex roof was once the Church of England School fronting on to Henshaw Lane, now Economy Spares.
The flat roofed brick building is on the opposite side of Henshaw Lane at the entrance to Sizers Court, now the premises of Opticaid UK.
This view is now obscured by new buildings and vegetation (September 2014). 
   The cottages to the right of the telephone kiosk are still standing, the red vehicle on the right is turning out of Henshaw Lane.

Bottom: The road is flooded following a cloudburst, the car is in front of the North Eastern Gas Board Showroom.
