  1. Hi Richard Yes the wall does look a bit "dodgy" but in the 50's this was not unusual.Puts Health and Safety into context! The wall was in the next yard down at the back of The Sportsman Inn.I see its listed on this site with Otley St Address but the entrance was on Hardy St.I have a photo of it just prior to demolition.I didn't take the photo so I will contact the owner to see if he would mind me downloading to this site.By the way it was always refer ed to as Sewells locally presumably from a landlords name.I do know they ran trips to the seaside every year for the children.It was the highlight of the year.Someone would be on the lookout and cheers went up when we heard the cry "Charras are here" There was a lot of dealing before hand as the tickets were allocated a colour and if you wanted to get on the same coach as a friend swops were the only way to do it.They took us to Breed Skeggy or Cleethorpes with a fish and chip dinner and half a crown spending money.

  2. Hi This photo was taken on Hardy St Walkley in the early 50's.The Street in the background was Otley St. The yard was elevated and we were on level with the bedrooms of two of the girls in the picture top right and front row.I'm top left next to my friend who lived on Harold St. Aliciamont
