Princess Street & Church Street are both on the 1875map. Looking, it appears that Church Street was extended to incorparate Princess Street on the 1910 map (see next message)

1910 Map
NB.Princess Street is not on the 1908 map & I can't find it in the 1901 Census

Edit- It seems to have been known as Princess or Princes Street. I have now found Princes Street in the 1901 Census
The White Hart is listed as been in Princes Street in 1901

Hi Howard,
Its so old now is this thread I didnt know if you had already found out some of your questions you asked.

I looked for the Gibbs brothers on the census I found them as follows

Jacob Gibbs born 1874 head Steel Makers Funaceman born Durham
Mary Gibbs         1884                                                 at Myton
Florence Anna Gibbs 1906                            
Annie born 1908
Jacob William 1909
Thomas Joseph 1910
John J (presume Jack) 1913
all children born at Hunslet, Leeds
Living at 23 Ashley Street, Hunslet, in 1911

Looked at the Woodlesford site. Saw the Flying Scotsman
a few times. Also the Mallard and the Queen going past from
her hols in Scotland.
I lived next to Armley Train Station and my Dad worked at that
time on the Railway in Leeds so got insider information when they
were coming through Armley to Leeds.

regards    
On Ilkla Moor ba'tat!!!
