Harehills in the 1930s: Photos bring Fforde Grene and Burtons factory into focus

It was the decade a Harehills landmark first offered customers served up a drink and a warm welcome.

The Fforde Grene opened its doors in the 1930s and would welcome generations of revellers until the pub closed its doors in the early 2000s. The photo is one of 19 gems showcasing life around the suburb during the decade. Another local landmark brought in to focus in this gallery is the Burtons factory on Hudson Road. The images are published courtesy of photographic archive Leodis, which is run by Leeds Library & Information Service. They also run heritage blog The Secret Library Leeds, which provides a behind the scenes look at the Central Library and highlights from its special collections, including rare books hidden away in the stacks.
