Chapeltown Road, Yorkshire Ripper poster
Undated. View of Chapeltown Road showing a large police poster on the side of a building, asking for help to find the Yorkshire Ripper. Peter Sutcliffe was jailed for life in 1981 for the murder of 13 women between 1975 and 1980, several of them in Leeds. The handwriting and voice referred to here ('Look at his handwriting. Listen to his voice.'), which led the police to search for a man with a Wearside accent, were later found to be a hoax. In 2005, 25 years after the last attack, a Wearside man, John Humble, was convicted and sentenced to 8 years for the sending of the hoax letters and tape.

This row of shops is approximately in the area where the Mandella centre is now, the bit that sticks out is the Roscoe (not the new roscoe further down on Sheepscar street south). You can just make out a little square sign on a shop in the middle of the row, this was a dental surgery where my dad used to get his choppers.
