Image shows Noah's Ark Court located off Meadow Lane, looking towards the narrowest end in the direction of Hunslet Lane. (Noah's Ark Court was wider in the middle, narrowing at both ends,and may have got its name because of its boat-like shape.) It was sandwiched between Noah's Ark Yard and Trafalgar Row. Three women in period dress are visible in the foreground, standing in the cobbled yard surrounded by buildings, and other people are in view at the far end of the yard. One of the women in the foreground is wearing a straw hat with brim and a fur-trimmed short cape or mantle. The other two are wearing aprons. The area is close to The South Market (leather market) and Whitechapel leatherworks. Photograph was taken in the early 1900s.
