thanks for the photos of the 2 pubs i was asking about,it brings back a lot of old memories of that area when i worked in springwell road in the 1960s.on a side note i wish the volunteer pub building had not been pulled down it was legal vandalism.
thanks a lot

Walked by the Highland on Rutland Street in Leeds the other day and noticed is closed up. Is this the case, does any one know? Was only a couple of months ago I was having a drink in there.

There are a couple more photographs, with comments, of the Volunteer Pub and the St George's Inn in Wortley Lane on Leodis:

Hi iansmithofotley If the Volunteer is the pub im thinking of it had leaded windows with different soldiers in different uniforms around the bottom windows.I was way too young to drink then but i went to a picture house just up from it cant recall the name of it but it was opposite what is now Salford Van Hire.
