[quote="tilly"]Nice to see it is in good hands if you had not got it i could see it being in a skip by now.


Just looking at that Coat of Arms always gave a warm feeling when i lived in leeds and even now it is very nice to see it. Although it also makes me feel nostalgic for the only City i shall ever love.
Thanks for the Pictures.

Alan Lowther - left in early 80s and had a shop at bottom of Rein Road and Dewsbury Road
Is this the end of the story ...
or the beginning of a legend?

In the late 60's / early 70's ihad a Green grocer Business in what was then a thriving Morley Market. i used to buy vegetables at times from a Market Gardener, one of the Lowther family off Brittania Road, There seemed to be quite a few Lowthers in his family and they owned large areas around Tingley and Morley growing Cabbages and Cauliflowers etc. I wonder if your man was related.

Cheers Buffalo for that reminder.
I didn't work with Alan when he was out of Miggy, I think he had left just before I started, but did work with him for 10 years at Black Prince, as far as I know he is enjoying retirement on the east coast, I believe Hornsey / Withernsea area. He used to own the fish and chip shop opposite the Babes in the Wood, he used to make me laugh when telling stories of how he dreaded, (in a jovial way) Mally Bland going in for fish and chips, apparently Malcolm would always wind him up. Alan is a lovely guy, would love to see him again.
