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.
