    Found this. I believe it was taken on 1 October 1967 at Bradford Exchange.

    Random fact: Bradford City's last ever league win at Bradford (Park Avenue) was the day before this picture was taken.

    Ha..Vintage Restaurant. Prawn cocktail, mixed grill, black forest gateau, washed down with a bottle of Mateus Rose. Finish with an Irish coffee. The 70s were the time for taking your girlfriend out somewhere for a meal.

    While I'm digging around the corners of the Internet, I found another railway picture of interest. This one shows a train at a rapidly falling apart Manningham Station. If you look carefully you can see the Valley Parade floodlights.

    I used to catch my bus home to Undercliffe from outside that "restaurant". Further down the corner was the El Greco

    No the Belfry was on the junction of Lister Lane and Bolton Road, just above Peel Park gates and opposite the top of Queens Road.
    The one at the top of Ivegate on the left was the Bernie Inn (Grovesner), later became the Rams Revenge.

    No Manningham Station was at the side of Queens Road bridge, the site eventually became the home of Manningham Concrete. Frizinghall Station is opposite Bolton Woods at the bottom of the road down from Bradford Grammar School, down last the Black Swan.

    Valley Parade 1966 still had the old terraced house in Burlington Terrace where the players changed and came out under the pitch years before, top left of the Kop.

    I remember the Vintage well, one of our favourite places for our Saturday meal out.
    My wife still reminds me of the time I had far too much beer before we arrived and then more of the aforementioned Mateus rose, then had to rush to the toilet and lose my steak meal before I had even paid for it.
    Great days.

    Apart from the Vintage back in the day there were a few places you could go if you wanted a decent steak (before red meat became a no no). The Grovesner (Berni Inn), La Rhonde, Little Italian, Bank Street Steak House, The Belfry.

    Whilst having a look at old photo's of Manningham Station I found this aerial shot. You can see VP off to the right and what looks like traces of the canal on the far left? Any guesses on when the phot was taken. It looks like there's a roof on the Midland Road stand if that gives any clues. FYI - I don't have a date when it was taken.

    It was called Chaplins for a while, think that was as a nightclub though.

    My grandad worked in the engine shed at Manningham Station up to the day it closed, transferred to Low Moor for the last couple of years of his working life. Working there he got to move trains about such as the Evening Star & Morning Star.
