Also in the bottom of Kirkgate was Scarrs hardware and ironmongers, they sold garden tools
I think I remember Scarrs having a large stall in the Kirgate Market at one time, maybe 20 years ago?

I remember this bus station from the early 60s. I was an apprentice at Miggy Pit and did 6 months technical training at a training centre at Crigglestone Colliery. I used to get the bus, number 11 I think, to Kettlethorpe and walk down the hill to Crigglestone, and obviously the return journey, every day except day release day at Wakefield Mining and Art College.

There was just eight people living there in two houses.

I wonder if Maudes Yard and the fairly close Maude Street are named after a Leeds person of note? I have tried searches (but not in great depth) but have not found any information on such a person. Does anyone know anything about Maude or a source of information?

In the first post in this thread I added a link to this image dated September 22 1999 in Leodis that showed the entry/exit of Pine Court http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?reso ... SPLAY=FULL.

Noticing that the name Roxby Café can be made out in that image I’ve done a Secret Leeds search and found that in a post by Blakey on Tue May 25, 2010 9:23 pm in a 'Caffs and Greasy Spoons' thread he stated "Another top class place, not exactly a transport cafe, was the Roxby - it was upstairs over the alleyway that led from Kirkgate to the rear of Wallace Arnold's coach station. They served fabulous breaKfasts and really great "home cooked" three course lunches”.

[quote="buffaloskinner"]The Bus Station on Cross York Street, just for Sid

Great Picture,
Is that Sid sat on the wall waiting for his Bus ??
That building behind was "Modern Floorcovering Company"where i worked after we moved from North Street.
The Sign is just visible, although that is a side street, mainly small tailoring firms were situated there (It was not a through street.
Our Carpet firm on Cross York St. stretched virtually all the way along and opposite were small independent Wholesale butchers. The large Slaughter house opposite on York St. attracted thousands of rats in the basement and i knew that from going down there with a couple of Market Porters. Wholesale fruit and veg. Traders kept their Crates/boxes etc down there.
