1969. Children play in the street outside their home. Two little girls, perhaps sisters, are in the doorway of number 7 of an unknown street, possibly in the Hyde Park area. Adjacent, to the left, is number 5. There are two identical doll's prams in the foreground. Originally, we believed this to be Harold Place but on checking this out we now know that it isn't. The photograph is by Eric Jaquier, from Switzerland, who spent some time in Leeds in 1969/1970 and lived in the Hyde Park/Burley area. He photographed the streets of Hyde Park, Burley, Armley and other areas of the city. Do you recognise yourself or a friend in the photo or do you have any ideas of where this might be?
