Aerial View, Wortley and City Centre
Undated, Aerial view of Wortley area showing the railway into Leeds City and Central Stations. To the left, just below the centre, large rectangle of land is Wortley Cemetery. Moving across to the right is Copley Hill railway junction and Holbeck. At the top edge (not visible without magnification) are the Merrion Centre which opened in 1964 and Quarry Hill Flats which were demolished by 1978. Below the gasometer in the centre are cleared areas of land which would become the sites of the blocks of flats, Clyde Grange and Clyde Court, built in 1968, and Wortley Towers and Wortley Heights, built in 1966. This gives a date between 1964 and 1966 for the photograph.
