Dewsbury Road Library, Childrens Library (Beeston) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Children's room in Dewsbury Road Library. The Library opened on 24th July 1903. The design of the building was simple; it was reported in the Leeds Mercury on 25th July 1903 that 'the object being to obtain as much accommodation as possible on a rather limited site, rather than to erect an artistic structure which would soon be spoilt by the atmosphere'. At that time the Dewsbury Road area was at the centre of much heavy industrial manufacturing.
