You were almost right. It was Ernest T Pulham

This is from the 1941 phone book

My dentist was Mr Wade on Brudenell Road (the triangle formed by the other two roads, Welton Road and Chestnut Avenue).

My grandmother always told me He'd taken over from a Mr Pulham. I wonder if they were related?

Talking of strange names in business there used to be a firm in Leeds some years ago "Bale and Hay* think they might have been Builders in the 60s/

I used to go to Mr Wade that was a long time ago
before him I used to go to Mr Tetlow I think that was his name on Burley road

I seem to remember a haulage firm in Leeds in the 50's called Murray & Bright. Does anyone else recall the firm?

Murray and Bright were I think plumbers merchants
on Roseville Road

I wouldn't disagree with that "dogduke", it certainly rings a bell. Just glad I wasn't imagining it.
