Kingsway 1976

This picture was taken in about 1976 from Ossett Town Hall and shows Kingsway, which was built in 1928 as a project to provide work for Ossett's unemployed men who had lost their jobs as a result of the depression in the 1920s. Queen's Drive was built in 1926 in the same manner.

The Co-operative Society radio, television and electrical store was demolished in the 1990s and the current Co-Op supermarket was built on the same site.
