c1980-82. View of the Municipal Buildings on The Headrow. On the left is the Central Library and City Museum, opened in 1884 to the designs of George Corson, which initially also housed the Police Headquarters. On the right is the Art Gallery, designed by W.H. Thorp and opened as an extension to the Municipal Buildings in 1888. Taken around the early 1980s before the extension of the Henry Moore Sculpture Gallery was added to the Art Gallery in 1982. In front of the buildings is Centenary Street which was demolished to make way for the extension; the buildings now open straight on to Victoria Gardens. On the right of the photo is Alexander Street. The two towers of the Civic Hall can be seen in the centre background while Leeds College of Technology is the white building in the distance on the right.
