Amazing, they are great photos. I have the second one in one of the Leeds Transport books. Colours are great.

Classic. Just classic. It would be fantastic just to be able to step back there.Even better to pay what, 11d (?) for a pint of whatever you wished in a proper pub.Thanks for putting those up Phill.

Indeed, even the old signs had character.Full version of the Ovaltine advert you can see.

Rakusen's foods are still going too.Rakusen’s was founded in 1890 by Lloyd Rakusen, who was a jeweller by trade. Every Passover, Lloyd would bake matzos in the kitchen of his home. This sideline blossomed into a flourishing business and by the early 1930’s a factory was built on Meanwood Road in Leeds to produce his matzos.The Company now operates from a modern factory on the outskirts of Leeds.

One of the places I worked at frequently as a young apprentice, later fitter, with BR was Hunslet Lane Goods (now Crown Point Retail Park). The top floor of the immense goods shed was mostly occupied by Rakusens who used it as a storage and forwarding site for their products. Boxes and boxes of foodstuffs I had never come across before were dispatched daily to destinations all over the country by Rakusens own on site staff, and more boxes came up the old hydraulic lifts and jiggers most days to replenish stock. Our instructions were "keep Rakkys happy, they are paying tenants", and faults on equipment used for their goods took priority.
