  9. 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.

    The firm at the bottom of the Street wouldn't have been there in the 50's, the Don wall would have been the bottom, the firm you could have remembered could be Easterbrook and Allcard to the rear of Anlaby, I seem to remember Hulleys relocating to Anlaby but not certain would have been when the houses were coming down.
