Mabgate, aerial view
Undated. Aerial view of the east of Leeds City Centre showing the Mabgate area in the foreground. Quarry Hill Flats are partly visible on the left edge with Eastgate roundabout just above and another roundabout to the right of them, which has since been replaced by the Inner Ring Road flyover. Leading off this roundabout are, clockwise from top left, Eastgate, New York Road, Regent Street, Mabgate and New York Road again. On the top right is North Street while on the bottom towards the left are the tower blocks of Cromwell Heights. St. Mary's Church is partly visible on the left below Quarry Hill Flats.

I'd say 1964/65. No sign of the Inner Ring Road, but the Gas Board tower block off Bridge Street/New York Road has been built, as have the buildings on the south side of the Headrow to the side of the Yorkshire Hussar/Tam'o'Shanter/Hoagys bar pub.
