I don't know how you do it Bitterboy but keep up the good work mate.   Don't get too disheartened by the lack of replies, members and non-member are seeing them and don't forgot your keeping a record of these old buildings / public houses for years to come.

It's Great Garden St,map is from 1910 and second is what it's like now,depot must have been roughly where Rigton Approach starts.

Thanks all for your comments,a bit more,pic 1 is an aerial view of the new area,the flats in the background are referred to in post below from another thread,probably should have said for those who don't know,Mr Smith lives in Oxton Hall and owns Appleton Hall nearby.Cheers all BB ps just found this ( not very clear) compulsory purchase order from 1935 to widen the street so guess it wasn't there much after this.


Brewery had a bottling plant on burmantofts road and brown hare on harehills lane and found a reference to a pub in accomodation road,also Marsh lane and Pressors Arms,Quarry hill and who knows how much more in between.Its probably coincidence but its interesting that when the land was cleared for regeneration it was called the Ebor gardens development,there are two roads called Oxton way and Appleton way,the blocks of flats built included; Oxton gardens,Oxton place and Oxton close and behind them blocks called Appleton square,Appleton close and Appleton court!.Brown hare was probably built when flats were,its on the site of a large brickworks as is some of the new development.As I said earlier its probably coincidental but interesting.
