Leeds Bridge at the junction of Hunslet Road and Meadow Lane
1967. View of Leeds Bridge at the junction of Hunslet Road and Meadow Lane. The white building is the premises of Hicks Bros, ironmongers. On one of the decorative corner stones there is a commemorative inscription which reads 'In 1847 at a meeting in these premises the 'Band of Hope' movement was formed its title being suggested by the Reverend Jabez Tunnicliffe, a prominent Leeds Temperance Worker'. Nowadays, adjacent to this inscription there is a Civic Trust Blue Plaque, commemorating Louis Le Prince. In 1886 he filmed what is thought to be the world's first moving pictures, with a single lens camera from a second storey window of Hicks Brothers. Part of this film of activity on the bridge can be seen on the Home Page of the Leodis website. The Adelphi Hotel is visible at the right edge.
