Here's another one... View looking north along east side of Lands Lane. People and traffic. Ross furs, Thorntons arcade, Mabane boot and shoe dealers, Mallories wine and spirit merchants and Benefit footwear visible. Headrow visible at end of street.

Was the shoe shop called Sasha's?Geordie-exile wrote: ↑Tue 10 Feb, 2009 12:02 amWe've done many a thread about the likes of Marshall & Snelgrove, Van Allen. Amber Fashions etc. but I don't recall us mentioning this shop. I wonder how much call there was for musquash among the 'great and the good' before the backlash came.There was another fur and leather shop on Commercial Street too, opposite what used to be Ravel. A couple of shops back from H Samuel on Briggate. D'oh, now I'm trying to remember the name of Ravel's rival outrageous shoe shop fairly opposite. I used to go a gym upstairs called Butterflies with a single door entrance between the shops.

Who'd have thought we needed so many fur shops in Leeds back then. Before global warming we all used to dress up like Eskimos. There were beaver trappers in Roundhay Park and Nanook of the North lived in Harehills
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!
