Lee, Tom – 1920

Tom Lee 1920
Title Tom Lee
Date 1920
Location Yeadon
Photo ID B264
Comment Tom Lee was a greengrocer, seen here with his horse and cart. His business was based at the Little Market on Yeadon High Street. The cart is stacked with empty fruit chips (baskets) to be returned to the wholesale market. The fruit chips were made of thin interwoven wooden strips or cardboard and were used for packing soft fruits. It must have been summer time when this photo was taken when strawberries, raspberries etc were in season.
