Many happy times in the Bowling Alley in 1968 with other Leeds University students. I remember fondly the Coffee Shop in the Arndale Center, especially the Black Forest Gateau.

I felt very nostalgic when I saw this photograph of the Bowling Alley. My friends and I had a miss spent youth there playing on the pinball machines. I can remember the Beatles playing Strawberry Fields on the jukebox.

I remember when I was there in I think 1965 when the Four Tops a famous soul group walked in unnanounced and put their big hit "reach out Ill be there" on the jukebox several plays. I went over and chatted to them and they told me they were on the way to batley for a gig.

In the late 60s there was often a guy dressed as a cowboy with his horse stood outside .He actually thought he was a real cowboy who was friends with Roy Rogers and Trigger. As teenagers we would ask him all the questions about being a cowboy and riding into the sunset with all the famous hollywood cowboys and he always had a story.

Wow this picture provokes so many memories and I didn't realise the Kentucky fried chicken outlet was there in 1966......I also think I knocked around with Paul Midgley as his family use to own and run a sweat shop / paper shop / tobacconist on brudenell road I believe "higha Paul how you doing mate" hope you and your brother are well!!

Around the time this picture was taken, my mother was the manageress of Dennis James paint and wallpaper shop in nearby Ash Road, after it had been taken over by her employer |Harry Seel Ltd. In April 1969 my wife and I signed up for a new house in Garforth and then went to tell my mother. We went mad a celebrated with a KFC.
