Aerial View, Merrion Centre, Under Construction
Description:
Undated, In the centre of the image is the Merrion Centre under construction in the early 1960s. The shopping centre and multi-storey are semi-built as is the carpark behind. However the site where Morrisons and Merrion House exist today has yet to be raised. Visible in the foreground is the white multi-storey building housing Kitson College, now the Leeds College of Technology. On the right of this is the College of Art, the Civic Theatre and the Central Higher Grade School on Woodhouse Lane with its flat roof, once used as a school yard. In the distance is Little London.
