Leeds Insanitary Areas
1899. Image taken by Alfred E Mattison during the 1899 official enquiry into Leeds Insanitary areas. The man in a bowler hat at the top of the stairs on the left appears to be making an inspection of the street. In the centre of the street cobbles slope downwards towards a gutter and a single drain while overhead clothes hang out on lines stretched across the street. Window shutters are steaked against the buildings on the left while behind, chairs are set out by entryways. People in period dress are stood by the buildings.
