Aerial View, Merrion Centre, Under Construction
Undated. In the centre of the image is an early 1960s view of The Merrion Centre with the Merrion Hotel under construction on the left. On the right are the future sites of Morrisons and Merrion House still to be cleared. Visible on the far right in the top corner is the rear of the Civic Hall while on the far left is Wade Lane. In the foreground is Little London, undergoing a slum clearance programme. This site becomes the location of Leeds Metropolitan University Brunswick Buildings and The Halifax H.Q.
