Taken in the early 1960s construction, the site for Merrion House and Morrisons on the left have still to be raised. Visible on the left is a large white multi-storey building housing Kitson College, now the Leeds College of Art and the Civic Theatre. Also visible is the Central Higher Grade School on Woodhouse Lane with its flat roof, once used as a school yard. In the distance is Little London.
