Did a quick search - can't see if its being mentionedbefore.Comments/Link off Leodis.Undated Green Road, number 185 is the shop belonging to Brizzolara and Plunkett, ice-cream makers. W. Williamson at 187 sells fish, poultry and fruit, a shop delivery bike is parked on the corner. Posters on the wall for Rowntrees Fruit Gums and Empire Theatre, Leeds, where Al Martino is appearing. There was a popular joke, used on strangers to the area, where it was boasted that the joker had visited 'Every Street' in Leeds. This was the Newtown/Burmantofts clearance area, photo taken in the mid 1950s.http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?reso ... SPLAY=FULL

Useless information time: Al Martino sang "Here in my Heart", which was the first ever Top of the Hit Parade.

Hope you don't mind Dogduke, but I've taken the liberty of posting your Leodis picture.

Hi Dogduke,I can remember a Brizzolara ice cream man in Woodhouse in the late 1940's/early 1950's. He used to push the ice cream around in a large, box type, barrow. He was a short stocky man and he was, in fact, blind. People would go out for an ice cream or with a container, such as a pint glass or a jug, which would be filled. Nobody had fridges in those days.Ian

SPLAY=FULL My dad was telling me exactly this not long ago regards 'Every Street'. This was his stomping ground as a kid.Just a question, am I right in thinking it was at the side of the Beckett wing of Jimmy's Nr. the rec?

every Street joned onto Green Road(now Lincoln G Rd)3rd street in from the Beckett Street Jn,lower downthan Primrose hill School.So - I reckon today it would haave been roundabout where he maisonettes which face onto LG Rd and the former Granville pub(now a supermarket).I don't think Beckett st is much wider now than it was then.

Hello, I'm new here to secret Leeds. I'm looking for info on Haymount St in Newtown Leeds.
The 1911 census has my Great Great Grandfather John Clayton living at 19 Haymount St. He had a fish and chip business somewhere near by
Other family members that would have also lived there were Selina Clayton, Mabel Clayton, George Clayton, William Henry Clayton and Minnie Clayton.
Any info would be appreciated
