Aerial view of railway lines and stations (City Centre) (3 comments)
Black & White image17th September 1962. Aerial view of railway lines and stations. In the centre of the bottom edge is Leeds Corporation Gas Department, and above it the lozenge shape is Holbeck Station (1855-1958). Above the centre, towards the top edge, are the two main railway stations with the River Aire and Leeds and Liverpool Canal looping round between. On the left is Leeds Central Station (1848-1967) and on the right is Leeds City Station formed in 1938 on the merger of Leeds Wellington Station and Leeds New Station. Cutting across the bottom left-hand corner is Wellington Road. Next Gelderd Junction on Wellington Road is the Grade II listed circular building, the Round House, opened by the Leeds & Thirsk railway in 1847. In the centre of the left edge is Bean Ing Mill, demolished in the 1960s and now the site of the Yorkshire Post building. The Town Hall is just visible a little way down from the top left edge. Wellington Street runs diagonally across the top left hand corner from the centre of the left edge.

Holborn Street, young boy with a toddler (Woodhouse)
Black & White imageMid 1950s. View of Holborn Street in the mid 1950s, showing a young boy posing for the camera with a toddler and her four wheeled push-along wooden cart. The boy's name is Vance Johnson and he lived at number 58 Holborn Street, seen at the right edge. His father, George Johnson was the transport manager for Craven Dairies Ltd. and this was a tied house. Like many other red brick homes in Leeds, the door opened straight onto the pavement, with no garden. Vance Johnson remembers, as many other people will, the tin bath in front of the fire. Behind the parked car in the foreground houses in Ashworth Place can be seen, then a detached property, number 51 Holborn Street. In the background the terraced homes visible are beyond Raglan Road in Cathcart Street.
