Aerial View of Leeds with Refurbished City Square
Description:
1962 Aerial view of the centre of Leeds. In the top left corner main railway lines and City Station can be seen with the River Aire. The river goes under the railway and emerges to the left of the lines. Just to the right of the railway a white triangle is the new layout for City Square. It has recently been restored to its original size and shape. In the bottom left corner the circular dome of the Corn Exchange is visible. On the right side the Headrow can be seen running from top to bottom.
