Football

I visited West Yorkshire during the World Cup Finals in June 2010, and found flags in support of the English team on cars, houses and pubs.  The team seemed to be well supported, despite its disappointing early performance.

When this photo was taken, England had played one game.
The result was England 1: USA 1.

The team was due to play Algeria the following day.
The result of that match was England 0: Algeria 0.

Update

England subsequently beat Slovenia 1:0, to take 2nd position in their group and go through to Round 2.

However in they were knocked out of the competition in their next game,  when they were beaten 4:1 by Germany on June 27, 2010.

Thank you to Margaret Spurlin who saw the photograph at the top of this page that I took about a year ago.  The photo was taken at Rawdon, Leeds, close to the Bradford/ Leeds boundary near Apperly Bridge.  (I was brought up in Bradford and lived there until I left school and moved to Edinburgh in 1963.)  Apperly Bridge was on of my train-spotting haunts in the days of steam trains.

'The Princess' Public House

"Your photo unleashed a hoard of memories.

I am now aged 69 and live in the USA but, as a child, I used to live here.  It was an Ind Coope and Alsops house.  My uncle, Carl Fairless, was an architect.  He did some major renovations, creating new stairs at the front of the pub, and transforming the upstairs into living quarters for my mother and stepfather and their two children.

Before the renovations, my brother and I used to have to walk through the pub and go up the old stairs to rest for the night. The upstairs used to be three bedrooms, a small bathroom (disgusting) and a huge room used by a Masonic group or some such thing.  There were old antlers, badges and trophies.  It was very exciting sorting through the old junk!

Your  photo brought back many memories. One customer, when I lived there, was a gentleman called Derek Lupton, who used to do charcoal drawings.  I still have a drawings of the Princess that Derek did in the late-1950s or early-1960s.
