My paternal grandfather, William (Bill)James Moody owned Moody's second hand shop. Bill bought and sold all sorts of goods, he would collect heavy items using a cart pulled by his beloved horse.

My Paternal Grandfather Bill Moody's Shop where I spent many hours each saturday polishing the furniture. He often sat outside in his armchair along with his collie Dog. He was attacked in the shop in the early 60's which earned him a Yorkshire Evening Post Headline "Brave Steptoe of Hunslet Moor" A loveable Old Rogue but much loved by us all.

each Saturday during the 50's my Mam and me would go 'on the lane' Moodys was a shop that she couldn't walk past without browsing. It was filled with what would today be considered antiques. I didn't appreciate it and being a teenager was embarrassed incase any of me friends saw me. Mam once bought a meat fork with a bone handle. It was in use for years until her death in 1994

The buildings date back to the the 1800s when a fair was held on Penny Hill. The photo brings back thoughts of my granddad Bill Moody and his horse and cart. He was a born trader who could not resist a deal even with his own grandson, (he sold me a bike pump for a tanner). Now we are a long way away in Australia but treasure the memory's of old Hunslet and Middleton Pete Broadley

My mother was from Hunslet - Betty Bleasby - and some of her family lived in Albert Yard, Penny Hill. Her father was Donald Bleasby and her mother was Annie (nee Wood).If anyone knows anything about the family I would love to hear from you. Betty went to the Church of England School and the family lived in Church Street. March 2007.

We used to live in Anchor Street & I remember my Dad used to love to browse round Moodys shop The picture looks very tidy as I remember it there were always boxes & furniture piled high on the forecourt I think just across the road from here were the old gents urinals & infront of them an old stone horse trough then behind there was an ironmongers shop another of Dads old haunts and also what he called the "Nail Mill" I do believe I used to go to school with Stuart & Sandra Bailey (Hunslet Carr) but never knew they were related to Moodys Thinking again & a little to the left of this picture there was a road & at the other side was the co-op haberdashery & green grocers then a very old low house that was used as a surgery by Dr.Coupland were his receptionist used to dispense drugs through a little window in the wall just inside the surgery

I remember Moodys second hand shop. My dad used to go and buy all sorts of things there. He once bought a lovely water colour painting signed and dated 1925 of boats in the morning mist in the shabby old frame. I still have the painting (now re-framed) and love it. I now live in Wiltshire, but my roots will always be in Leeds, and everytime I look at this painting i'm reminded.
