Historic adverts revealed in Beeston


This advert for Almonds Removal and Storage was revealed when the modern hoarding was taken down earlier this winter.

Sign Almonds removals

The sign is on a gable end of a row of shops on Dewsbury Road at the junction with Garnet Road and Parkside Lane.

Sign Granby chemistJust along Dewsbury Road you can make out this sign next to the old New Inn pub. It advertises Granby Chemists on the side of what is now a food takeaway, but was still a chemist until recently.

Do you remember Almonds or Granby’s? Perhaps you picked up your presciptions from Granby’s, or Almonds helped you moved house? Please tell us about your memories in the comments below, or share your photos of painted wall adverts by emailing them to info@sllife.leeds11.com.

You can find more examples of painted signs from around Leeds on the Secret Leeds website (there’s an older photo of Granby’s on page 6 of the thread).
