Municipal Buildings, Leeds City Police Headquarters.
Undated. This long, narrow room on the first floor of the Municipal Buildings is within Leeds City Police Headquarters. It is thought to have been at the Southern end of the exhibition space which now exists in the central library. This is a large open space which has a series of blocked up arched windows which at one time overlooked an open yard. The yard was built on to create library stacks. When the Police Headquarters were here, between 1934 and 1965, this large space was divided into rooms and offices. Room 29 was for the police women (in 1946 there were 12 women constables, 1 inspector and 1 sergeant), Room 30, the Court Superintendent's Office , Room 31, Statistical and Drawing Office, Room 32, the Identification Room, Room 33, the Conference Room and finally the room in the image which appears to be a waiting room with a row of seats. There is a door, left which leads to the corridor and other rooms.
