Jogon,Yorkie has only contributed to 5 threads with 10 posts and had you not ressurected this thread 3 of them would not have had a post in over 2 years two of them over 5 years.http://www.secretleeds.co.uk/forum/Prof ... serID=285I haven't checked the other 4 threads but I suspect Yorkie's posts, even on the two updated this year, are all 5 years old.In short don't get your hopes up about contact although he may have "subscribed" to this thread if you are lucky.TB

It's surprising to realise that the very sad manner of death of David Oluwale was a few days over 50 years back. It just does not seem to have been that long ago.

A new footbridge is being built across the River Aire in Leeds to commemorate David Oluwale. This is a link to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post website (I have used the Tiny URL website to reduce what otherwise was an extremely long URL). https://tinyurl.com/2fvb7a7z
If you do not have a YEP account you will have to click the 'I'll do it later' to see the report when asked to sign in.

:!: Excellent idea, the council have no money for Care Homes and many other local necessities (wait for your Council Tax bill this year) yet they can build another bloody bridge named after a person very few will know. End of rant.
Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

Hiya tyke bhoy :).
Though at this time of year I don't do as much walking around I still take my simple digital pocket camera with me when I do (I prefer it to using my smart phone camera) but I rarely take photos now. One reason is that there is just such a lot of major work going on (buildings and roads) that I cannot really keep up with and also the works seem to be going on forever! For example I half expect the completion of the renovation into apartments of the old Public Dispensary on North Street may not finish in my lifetime! :roll:
PS. I'm glad I don't have a car and so do not drive in the centre of Leeds as the eternal road works must make it horrendous. It seems to be chaotic at the Corn Exchange/New Market Street/Call Lane/Vicar Lane/New York Street area!
PPS. Apologies for going off-topic.

Hi Leodian Your photographic input to the site has been fantastic and i would like to say thank you for all your effort it will be a sad day when you stop.I know some days it must have been a trek walking around the city center but it has been very worthwhile to us members.This is just to let you know at times you might not get a lot of feedback but i for one appreciate what you do and i think that will go for many members on S/L.
No matter were i end my days im an Hunslet lad with Hunslet ways.

Also agreed and I would add that because of the way you also annotate your pictures that one day in the future they will be of historical importance too especially your portrait of a changing city.

As the Sergeant Major would have it "Carry on that man!" :D
