Picture of Wimpy on York road .

Is it true that what is now Netto on York road ( near where the Lion and Lamb used to be) started as a Wimpy?

Could anyone please point me to a picture of this to settle a bet?

Thanks

Thanks for the replies. Those in the first link are not York road and streetview won`t help cos it was about 40 years ago when it was there ( thats if it was there).

Does anyone remember it?

Got this when I googled 'Leeds Wimpy' in Google Images. Don't know if it helps.

Hi

Leeds City Council has a brilliant website of old photographs of Leeds. Try www.leodis.org and then searching for York Road. Fingers crossed you might be lucky.

Burger King on the Killingbeck roundabout used to be a drive-through Wimpy when it first opened (probably around 20 years ago), before that it was a pub called The Melbourne.

Hope this helps!

The only Wimpys I can recall in Crossgates/ Seacroft area are the one that used to be in the old Seacroft Centre (now knocked down and the site of Tescos) and the one in the Arndale Centre which is still in the same place as when I was a child.

The picture posted is actually what used to be an Asda years ago and is now a Bingo place next to the Travellers.
