    I remember the Owen Owen warehouse very well. My mate worked there. On the right, just out of shot, was a small upholstery shop and next to that was a Higson's pub. I can't remember the name just now. I remember Letheren's timber merchants. On the opposite corner of Queen Ann Street was E A Clare & Son who made snooker tables. I worked there between 1971 and 1977 as an upholsterer making bar seating and chairs.
    Just around the corner from Letheren's was the Derby Arms pub, a Tetley house managed by Pat Molloy and his wife. Some memories of that area, Mansfield Street, Hunter Street and the Four Squares.
