Green Lane, filming of
Description:
1962. View taking during the shooting of a scene from the film 'Billy Liar'which took place on a cleared area off Green Lane, where the demolition in progress of old terraced housing made an ideal location for the filming of a ruined city. Green Lane Primary School is seen in the background. Directed by John Schlesinger and starring Tom Courtenay, the film of Leeds author Keith Waterhouse's book was shot mostly in Bradford with a few scenes in Leeds; locations on The Headrow and outside the Town Hall were used in addition to this one.

I think the school in the background had a playground on the roof, which always facinated me when we used to go past. It is now a residential home.
