1: to 6: Advertisements for forthcoming films

7: Glenna Hairstylist of 87 High Street advertisement.

8: Advertisement promoting a nursing career at Menston Hospital (High Royds).
 
9: Advertisement for Ken Sykes of Guiseley, a credit agent.

10 & 11: Two advertisements for "Kolynos" dental products for false teeth.
The company which was created by N S Jenkins in 1908 also made toothpaste, all very popular in Britain in the 1940s/50s.
The business was bought by Colgate-Palmolive in 1995, products are still sold in other parts of the world including South America.
 
12 & 13: Advertisement for Littlewoods football pools, founded in Liverpool in 1923 by John Moores it was the first pools business to become established.
One of it's most notorious winners was Viv Nicholson of Garforth who vowed to "Spend, Spend, Spend!"
Internet on-line betting and the lotteries which now operate have led to a decline in the number of people speculating on forecasting the weekly results of matches.
Who can remember Saturday evenings when the results were announced on the wireless ? The sonorous tone of the announcer, silence in the room in case Dad missed a vital result, then the scrunch of paper as the pools coupon was cast away with a sigh of "next week maybe".
 
14: An advertisement for McLeans toothpaste to be screened in the cinema.
 
15 & 16: Management announcements screened at the cinema.
One asks patrons to leave scooters and cycles in the adjacent alley, the other apologises for a break in the film.
This was a common occurrence in cinemas of that era and would be met with disappointed grumbling or in the case of a children's matinee with loud boos and much stamping of feet then cheers when the programme was restored!

17: Notice of a forthcoming serial to be shown at the cinema "Lost City of the Jungle".
