Ackroyd Street, road accident
11th November 1962. Looking up Ackroyd Street from the doorway of Morley Friends' Adult School. Cobblestones still cover the road surface and there appears to have been an accident up the street. An Army lorry that had been parked outside the Drill Hall alongside the pavement on the right has seen its brakes fail, run downhill, bumped into a car and then careered across the road into the wall of a house at the other side. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive taken by Len Sanderson.
