The young girl (right front) was my mother, Marian Roberts who lived at 22 Moorland Crescent. She married Eric Lee of Yeadon in 1942 and moved to Yeadon in 1947. I have a copy of the original photograph, and on the back Marian has written circa 1936, which would have made her 16 at the time it was taken. She died at the age of 84 in 2004.
