Beckett Street Board School
Undated. View of Beckett Street Board School.The photographer is standing in the playground which, at this side, fronts Beckett Terrace. It shows the entrances for the Senior and Junior Girls. The school dates from 1885 and in a Leeds Directory for 1906 there were 191 boys, 215 girls, 316 infants and 242 juniors (mixed) attending the school. In later years it became Lincoln Green Primary School but is now demolished and the site is a car park for St. James's Hospital.

My parents worked in this school from 1950 for 9years, my dad was the caretaker and it was handy as me and my mates could play in the school yard, I had a newspaper round in Beckett Street in 1957 so I recognise many street names from the early days.We were there when demolition started of many houses with many taking council property all over Leeds.I suppose many who shared these days, miss the great community street parties and when we all talked to each other.
