View shows a record-setting race at the Roundhay Park cycle track, around the 1950s or 1960s, which produced the fastest last 200 metres ever recorded at the track. The five riders shown are named as (from left to right): P. McArthy (obscured), Jeff Cresswell, Barry Hoban, Jeff Jaques and Keith Womersley. Other cyclists can be seen on the right, in the middle of the track, watching the race. Race officials and a photographer can be seen near the finish line. This image was digitised as part of the ‘Future Prospects of Urban Parks’ project, conducted by the University of Leeds in partnership with Leeds City Council, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number: AH/N001788/1).
