Osmondthorpe Old Hall, Osmondthorpe Lane
Undated. View of Osmondthorpe Hall located off York Road on the east side of Osmondthorpe Lane in a photograph by Alf Mattison. The photographer, Alfred Mattison, was born in Hunslet in 1868. His passion for local history led to lecturing, photography and writing. In 1908 he wrote "The Romance of Old Leeds" based on his articles and photos for the Yorkshire Daily Observer. He died following a street accident in Leeds in September 1944. Osmondthorpe Old Hall was demolished and then rebuilt in 1814. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth cnturies it was occupied by farmers before being demolished in the 1930s. The property is not to be confused with the 18th century mansion, Osmondthorpe Hall, which stood off the west side of Osmondthorpe Lane and was destroyed by fire in 1924. Fifty acres of the grounds of Osmondthorpe Hall were sold to the council in 1886 to provide a site for East End Park.
