I thought Tallguy might appreciate seeing this. How it's changed.

Thanks for that - our old pal Oblicno actually brought it to my attention yesterday. A fascinating portrait of a world that no longer exists. I'd moved away from Leeds by the 1970s but am back near there again now, and like many cities across the UK it's had a major facelift since then.

It's a pity they chose the city market picture to represent Leeds as it is now, because that's a scene that hasn't changed in 100 years. There's a shiny new retail area bang in the heart of the city that has transformed it again, with trendy bars, lots of upmarket shops (to join our Harvey Nicks) and best of all an Everyman Cinema with sofas instead of seats...

[and best of all an Everyman Cinema with sofas instead of seats...

My local AMC has just started to use these awful la-z-boy style recliners. The whirring of the chairs is really distracting.

" Don't talk to me about sophistication-I've BEEN to Leeds!"

Guess the quote!

Was it Cockney gangster Michael Caine as he passed by Sheffield and Leeds on the way to Newcastle in Get Carter??.

If it wasnt him, it shouldve been!!!

Sorry guys-you were both wrong-it was Harry Enfield playing The Northener from his own TV show.

Sadly I'm no good at posting YouTube links but I'm sure you can find it.

My other favourite one from this character-"I say what I like, and I like what I bloody well say!"

Heavily modelled on Geoff Boycott, I'm told!

Yes, of course it was Harry Enfield. I'll beat the whippet with my cloth cap tonight as a penance. That's not a euphemism, by the way.

And it's SIR Geoffrey Boycott to you, laddie.

Reminded me of something I heard on the radio the other day-

Interviewer to cricketer "I'm told you took an instant dislike to Geoff Boycott. Why?"

Cricketer to interviewer " It saved time".
