    In the black and white piccie the tower on the Spofforth pub can be seen. Behind it is the Microwave tower of the Gas Board offices. I worked there at that time. Many an afternoon had been spent in the Spofforth.

    The houses were glazed yellow brick. most are still around today. The Gas Board offices are no more. Still there but unused.

    the row nearest the ice cream van was demolished around 1973/74 as part of slum clearance

    The house behind the lamp standard is subsiding and being propped up with wood.

    Those hairstyles are back in fashion.

    The Grosvenor is up the other end of Lawrence Road, near Gainsborough Road.

    That modern picture is actually Lawrence Road too isn't it? Where the new NHS Surgery is?

    One other thing isn't Webster road the first road udner the CPO's? Aren't they meant to be razed in 2008?

    What a wonderful picture, I can remember walking to Webster Rd school (infants and juniors) My mum worked at the school as a diner lady. I can also remember a dairy, just around the corner, we would go and see the horses, chickens and cows.

    I used to walk down Webster Road every day coming home from school.
    I'd leave St Hugh's and go to Parkers (the shop) for sweets, pop or a joke (eg plastic fried egg etc) and then the lypop lady (who was always smiling) would help us cross the road.
    Me and my mates would play by the old cinema - not knowing that someone had been murdered there many years earlier.
