20th May 2007. View of an old electricity sub-station built for Leeds Tramways Department (Hawksworth) in Abbey Road in 1906. It provided power on the route from Woodside Avenue, Kirkstall Road to the Hawksworth Road Terminus, route number 4. It was decommisioned in 1948 when a new power plant opened in Kirkstall Road. The stone building stands opposite the former site of Kirkstall Forge. It was once taken over by a firm dealing in equipment for pool and snooker. Presently, the building stands empty.
