Introducing myself

New on here, caught the site accidentally when googling the Ostler's. I was born in Leeds in 1955, went to Low Road, Coldcotes & Foxwood, then Park Lane. Left Leeds in 1975 for Sydney Aus, and lived here (or nearby) since. Haven't been back since 1995.

Fitting that Phil, Foxwood then on to the old penal colony. What made you move then ? Don't blame you mind, loved Auz when I was out there and would have emigrated if they'd of accepted me.

Lager or Bitter?    Not many ales here, mainly lager

Kylie or Dannii?  Neither, although Kylie has a nice bum.

Union or League? League

How's Skippy doing?
 Mostly on the menu for my little dog these days

How do Phil, welcome, not from Leeds mesen, next door but near enough for loads of nights out in the town, including Ostlers. Always have a nostalgic look at the door  when I'm heading up there. Usually on the way to more salubrious places like The Angel now.

Been to Sydney once in '94,  liked it a lot. My mate got stopped from going into Jackson on George for being too scruffy which I guess is some going by Aussie standards

Rhinos or United?
Kaisercheifs or the Three Johns?
Alan Bennett or Mick McCann ?

The Jam or the Clash?

TV or Radio?

English weather, shit or what?

Where was Low Road?


Before I left in 1975 I drank at the Ostler's, Piccadilly Bar and 3 Legs.

Low Road Primary school was on the corner of Low Road and Balmoral St. Hunslet, long since demolished.

Never heard of The Piccadilly Bar before.

G'Day Phil!

My brother-in-law lives in Sydney and should be avoided at all costs: I think he lives in a place called Manley, or summat like that?

So, I'm officially no longer the furthest away, although I'm sure people would still like me to be.....

Piccadily Bar was a bar in what was the Swan, it had 2 entrances. One off the Headrow down some stairs from next to the City Varieties and one off a ginnel that ran between Briggate and Lands Lane

It had a different name in the 80's I think, possibly a link to the City Varieties, Its called The Swan again now.

Was it called Barney's ?

How do Phil, that image is Hunslet I believe. Remember the shops as a kid traveling into Leeds for the games in the sixties.

The pub is the Golden Lion, a building I took an interest in in later life, great, great boozer, traditional pub in every aspect it outlived the shops by some distance. It was one of our (football team) favourite stop offs after games played in leeds. Landlords missus would run upstairs and make great plates of sandwiches for us.

Hope I'm right now.

Anyway, welcome Phil.

I used to frequent the Piccadilly bar as a young man too, another trad boozer.

*wistfully goes back in time*

The pub was the Old Red Lion and it was on Low Rd. Thwaite Gate (pic was taken in the 70's)

Barney's when I were a lad. Never saw anyone remotely famous in there but I did regularly see two birds from school one of whom I was madly in love with yet unable to tell her - shyness eh?- all is not lost, had a brief dalliance with her mate. Funny how things turn out isn't it? I also saw a lad get glassed in there too. Horrible and really out of character for the pub. One of my favourite boozers ever that, right behind Cullens and Whitelocks probably.

What was Cullens called before?

Evening Phil, I'm from Stafford which is nowhere near Leeds.

Sheeps, I'm guessing there weren't any cars when you remember that scene.  Dodging horse shite and whatnot.

You are so funny.

Course its the Old Red lion you senile suasage. A few strides down the road and you're at the Crooked Billet. Just across from the Red Lion was the Punch Clock. Now a crappy eating  type pub spot called the Crooked Clock or something
sheeps

I knew all that, the punch clock was our first call on LU match day's for a while.

The street opposite the Old Red Lion was Spring Grove Street, and about 4 streets up on the left was Belmont Mount where I lived from 1957 - 62. Back to back, bath in the kitchen, outside share toilet ... all the mod cons.
