Quarry Hill, aerial view
16th June 1999. Aerial view of Quarry Hill, the site of the notorious Quarry Hill Flats which were demolished in the mid 1970s. Now it is occupied by Quarry House at the top of the photo, the Department of Health & Social Security headquarters opened in 1993, and at the bottom by the West Yorkshire Playhouse which dates from 1990. Also visible is the Leeds College of Music, above and to the right of the Playhouse. New York Road runs from the bottom left to top centre, Eastgate is on the bottom left and St. Peter's Street on the bottom right. York Street runs from centre right to top centre and the railway line is seen on the right. The Central Bus Station is visible at the bottom right.

Surely the use of the word "notorious" as part of the description is unwarranted (and incorrect).
