City Centre, aerial view, looking west
1974. Aerial view looking west from the city centre. The Town Hall is on the left, with the rooftops of the Municipal Buildings (housing the Central Library and at the time the City Museum) seen in front. Behind the Town Hall to the left is Brotherton House, then the headquarters of Leeds City Police, while further back in the centre of the picture are the high rise flats of Marlborough Towers. Great George Street runs up from the bottom towards the right, while Portland Street is further to the right. In the distance on the far right are the two chimneys of Kirkstall Power Station.
