John Square (the St. wasn't often used, even on official documents!) was one of several squares of stone cottages, built for millworkers, down Keighley Road (usually known as The Becks). Other very similar squares included James Square and Thanet Square. (You will find that, on some censuses, the address is simply given as The Becks)My great grand parents also lived down there.
The squares were condemned as no longer fit for habitation and demolished in the 1970s. Today they would be seen as traditional and full of character, and renovated!

Thank you for the information on John Square, and the historic photo, it was very exciting to learn about this area . Perhaps someone will know the family I never knew. My Grandfather was Ernest Edmondson a farmer in 1952, my father was Gordon Edmondson who would be 22 years of age in 1952 and worked at that time as a labourer for the Yorkshire Electricty Board. They lived at that time at No 5 John's Square. This information comes from a copy of the marriage certificate of my father to Lottie Garnett in 1952, who was aged 16 at that time, and is the only information I have. Look forward to your comments!
