Description:
17th October 1958. View shows HM Queen Elizabeth II, escorted by Councillor Albert King, Chairman of the Welfare Services Committee, with the Duke of Edinburgh following behind, arriving at Brackenhurst Hostel on Fieldhouse Drive. The royal couple were there to officially open this care home for the elderly, one of many stops they made during a two-day visit to Leeds. The hostel had since been demolished and private flats have been built on the site.
