Aerial View, City Centre with River Aire and Stations
Description:
1964 This aerial view shows the network of railway lines, roads and waterway links to the south of the City Centre, looking from the Wortley aera. On the extreme left is the line going into Central Station, which was on Wellington Street. Moving right, Whitehall Road with Monk Bridge crossing the River Aire. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal is running alongside this section of the river, with City Station to the right as the river flows under the Dark Arches. The view to the right looks over Holbeck towards Hunslet.
