Image shows Mike Carter of Picture Box, based at Technorth's new premises in Harrogate Road. With him is Technorth student, Jayne David who had embarked on a work placement with Picture Box. Technorth was run by a Voluntary Management Committee of local people, and funded by Leeds City Council and the MSC. It offered a range of training and courses in subjects such as computing, electronics and electronic office skills. These were on offer to all sections of the community including school-leavers, adults (with a course designed for women in technology), and children. Technorth operated an 'open access' policy where individuals were encouraged to drop in for help and advice or work on their own projects. Sixteen industrial units were available for small technology businesses such as Picture Box, a Computer Graphics firm.
