WOW nice one. on that google view look at the fountain head and how much its been altered not a single window or door frame seems to be in its original build or is that actually the original first house of the street extended to the pub. The arches look v similar to the houses design

And the other side of the Fountain Head. Industrial Street, although very little sign of it, or industry there these days.One of you guys will have to place the GSV gubbins on here. That's beyond me I'm afraid.

The sign for Roscoe Street is still high on the 'Roundhay Road side' wall of the former Archives building in Sheepscar. Not much there apart from the back of the old Post Office/Archives building and the Ramgarhia Board.And the sign for Holroyd Street, off Sheepscar Street South near the old Pointer looks just as redundant as the 'for sale' signs on the old Pointer.

there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.
