|||Boar Lane, looking West, showing queue for Roundhay trams (City Centre) (1 comment)
|29th May 1944.
Looking west along Boar Lane showing crowds of people completely blocking the right-hand causeway as far back as we can see, queueing for trams to take them to Roundhay Park. The occasion was a Whit Monday Bank Holiday during the Second World War, which for many must have been a rare opportunity to get away for a day out and forget the troubles of wartime, heading for the baths, Waterloo Lake, or to watch the cricket, as other images on Leodis show. J. Jones, costumiers and furriers, is on the right, followed by Holy Trinity Church and C&A.
This image was digitised as part of the ‘Future Prospects of Urban Parks’ project, conducted by the University of Leeds in partnership with Leeds City Council, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number: AH/N001788/1).

|||Boathouse and Pavilion, Waterloo Lake, postcard (Roundhay)
Postcard of Roundhay Park with a postmark of 29th February 1912 franked on the back. The view looks across Waterloo Lake to the boathouse and pavilion. Built in 1902, the boathouse included a dry dock and could accommodate up to 150 boats. Its roof was used as a promenade for looking out over the lake. The clock was a later addition. The boathouse would eventually be transformed into the Lakeside Cafe with a second storey being added in the 1980s.
