Aerial View, Leeds City Station (City Centre)
Black & White image1962 The centre of this aerial view is dominated by Leeds City Railway Station with tracks running diagonally from the top left to the bottom right. Towards the top left is the place where the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal separate. The River flows above the station before disappearing under the Dark Arches, reappearing lower down to rejoin the canal at Victoria Bridge. The canal runs to the right of Tower Works, famous for its italianate chimneys. Above Leeds City Station is the smaller Central Station on Wellington Street which closed in 1967. Wellington Street runs from the top edge to City Square in the centre of the right edge. The Square is bordered by The Queens Hotel, Majestic Cinema, The Post Office and The Royal Exchange Building. Boar Lane runs from the bottom of City Square. In the lower right corner Briggate runs back towards the left, passing underneath the railway lines. Below the City Station is the Queen's Hall, a former tram depot on Swinegate, converted to an exhibition centre and concert hall before being demolished in 1989. The pale coloured building below this with an arched semi-circular roof is the Omnibus Depot on Sovereign Street.

Dock Street looking West in the direction of Bridge End (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image1964. Dock Street looking West in the direction of Bridge End. This narrow street was at one time a hive of activity. On the right are Aire and Calder Navigation buildings where goods were loaded from carts onto barges and vice-versa via loading dock platforms. On the left are Georgian properties which once belonged to early wool cloth merchants. A sign on the first floor of number 32 indicates the premises of Peel's Printing Press. This area no longer looks run-down and dingy as in this image from the 1960s. Leeds Waterfront has been rejuvenated with a mix of new and old. Old buildings have been renovated with the emphasis on conservation and preservation. There are smart riverside and loft apartments for city living and a variety of shops, hotels restaurants and bars.
