Aerial View, Quarry Hill Flats
Description:
1965 View shows Quarry Hill Flats looking north. The layout of the blocks can be clearly seen with Moynihan and Lupton Houses running along the top edge of the site. The distinctive curve of Oastler House is also visible. On the bottom left of the view is Kirkgate Market, followed to the right by the Bus Station, then Marsh Lane and the railway line. Eastgate Roundabout is in front of Oastler House. Behind this, New York Street runs from left to right. Moving back, Regent Street runs towards the top edge branching into Sheepscar Street South and Roseville Road to form a 'Y' shape.
