Burton House, a playground game of hopscotch
1957. View of female pupils of various ages at play in the playground of Burton House in Burton Avenue. The girls in the foreground are enjoying a game of hopscotch on a grid marked out on the surface of the playground. Behind the playground wall is the odd-numbered side of Dobson View (off Burton Avenue), a street of red brick back-to-back terrace homes. These are back-to-back with the even-numbered side of Dobson Terrace. The view also looks across Burton Avenue, and the grounds of Cockburn High School, to Back Fairford Place, background left. Burton House was originally a private residence, built in 1791. It was acquired by the council in 1919 and converted to an annex for Hunslet Moor Council School. Later, it was used as premises of the sixth form at Cockburn High School. It became vacant when pupils of Cockburn High School transferred premises to a new school in Gipsy Lane and Bellway Homes renovated the building and converted it to ten apartments in 1986.
