If i remember correctly from my days working at burtons (about 1998ish) in harehills there was a rather nice tetleys huntsman (i think) where compton road turns into stoney rock lane, (i think it's the junction with Stanley road or lane)

I captured the sign on Wortley Road this evening, it can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] ... 7/'Philips and Son Plumbers' is all I can make out. Can you get the rest of it?

there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.

It's near the Becketts pub Meanwood.. I haven't decided if i'm going to use it yet. It borders on interestingness. I've a load like that....
