    Greyhound Stadium

    I went to Hyde Park a couple of times, and once to Darnall with a dog owner, his dog was called Bust.
  2. I remember a few holes, one in the area of Lyons Street was a pit shaft covered with a large concrete slab,pushed aside by the dozer driver, luckily he stopped in time it would have swallowed him, another at Woodhouse we had nearly finished the job and were tidying up, there was a piece of flagstone in the middle of the site and as I lifted it there was a 12 foot wide cistern underneath about ten foot deep shaped like a bell, another at Commonside was a domestic well in a backyard about 20 foot deep with a hollowed out log down the middle.

    Anlaby Street

    George Thorpe ( a local )had the coal drops for a time in the 70's making and repairing pallets, and I was told the Simcox's (local ) built the industrial units on top after Fieldhouse Brothers had used it as a tip. My memories of Anlaby Street as a kid were painful, as I was making my way along the bottom of the Don wall, somebody decided ( my auntie as it turned out ) decided to empty her teapot over the wall of Brough Street and the contents landed on me, still hot.
