Black & White imageUndated, Taken between 1955 and 1962 this aerial view of the City Centre shows Park Row running vertically along the left of the image. In the top left corner of the photo, at the top of Park Row is Cookridge Street with the Civic Theatre (1868) visible on the right and the Leeds Permanent Building, later The Light, below. In front of this is The Headrow and shops and offices flanked by Upper Basinghall Street on the left and and Albion Street on the right. Where these two streets meet Boar Lane at the bottom of the image is now the site of the Leeds Shopping Plaza, previously the Bond Street shopping centre built in the 1970s. Below this is the Mill Hill area. At the top of the image on the right is Allder's, originally built as Lewis's in 1932. In front of this is the site eventually used for The Headrow shopping centre (1988) with Lands Lane on the far right. At the bottom of Lands Lane is the Holy Trinity Church (1722-6) and the area used to create the Trinity and Burton Arcade (1967).

Chantrell of Leeds. Gas storage facilities can be seen in the distance over the roofs of the Trinity and Burton Arcade.

Bank Street Gates, Trinity Leeds. (City Centre)
Colour imageMarch 2015. The Bank Street (northern) entrance to Trinity Leeds (off Commercial Street) are hung with these metal gates designed by Leeds based artist and sculptor, Ian Judd in collaboration with Arts Facilitator, Antonia Stowe. His design for these gates, which measure 3.2 metres in height and 3.8 metres in width, expresses the rich heritage of Leeds and the diversity of modern Leeds life. He chose to work with a traditional drawing technique combined with the latest technology. There is so much to observe in these gates, including many aspects of family life, working life in factories, offices and retail, the railways, sport, the arts etc. We see a woman working at a sewing machine producing garments for the traditional tailoring trade while a saleswoman is showing off a dress to a fashionable customer. There are even representations of some of the most iconic buildings in Leeds like the Town Hall, Holy Trinity Church and, of course, the glass dome of the new Trinity Leeds. The gates were commissioned by the developer of Trinity Leeds, Land Securities and installed in 2013.
