View showing a corner of Queen Square with a gas lamp seen in the foreground. This square has been relatively unchanged since Georgian times, having been built in the early 19th century, thought it is now owned by Leeds Metropolitan University. Gas lighting still dominates to this day. The buildings, attached railings and the gas lamp are now Grade II listed. Taken from the book 'When the Streets Were Lit by Gas' by Philip Croft Tordoff.
