7th Lord Mayor's Annual Parade, Lewis's 'Fells Wargo Railway Co.' (City Centre) (2 comments)
Colour image21st June 1980. Image shows proud members of Lewis's 'Fells Wargo Railway Co.'(A humorous play on words with reference to 'Wells Fargo', of course). They pose in their colourful costumes in front of the spectacular decorated steam engine of the American West. This was Lewis's entry to the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade for which it won Best Overall Entry. It took over 20,000 ribbon parcel bows to decorate the float. Four female staff are dressed as saloon girls complete with buttoned boots and Ostrich feather headdresses. There is a cowboy in the centre and the two North American indians are Neil Malloch, left, and Simon Riley, right, both from the Display Department of Lewis's on the Headrow. The Parade set off from Woodhouse Moor, seen here, then went down Woodhouse Lane, then Merrion Street and Vicar Lane, into Briggate then the Headrow, on to Calverley Street, past the Civic Hall to salute the Lord Mayor and finally returned to Woodhouse Moor.

Aerial View of Woodhouse Moor (Woodhouse) (13 comments)
Black & White image1952. Aerial view of Woodhouse Moor, an area of common land acquired by Leeds Corporation for the sum of £3,000 in 1855. Woodhouse Ridge was purchased in 1877. Coming in from the top left edge is Hyde Park Road where it meets Hyde Park Corner and the junction with Woodhouse Lane. Woodhouse Lane runs across to the right edge. On Woodhouse Lane, Woodhouse feast is in view. Snaking down the right edge is Clarendon Road which used to be Reservoir Street due to the reservoir belonging to Leeds Corporation Waterworks which still runs alongside it. (The reservoir was built in 1837 and was bought by the Corporation in 1852, and after several tragedies it was covered, and simultaneously enlarged, in 1865. In 1990 it was reduced in size, with the end near the junction with Woodhouse Lane, immediately behind the library, being sold for development - information supplied by Merrick). Paths radiate from the circular centre of the moor and the bowling greens and tennis courts can be seen. At the end of the path running to the right edge the memorial to Queen Victoria is visible. Moorland Road cuts across towards the bottom joining Clarendon Road. Leeds Grammar School is at the bottom edge. The photograph is thought to have been taken around Easter Time when the fair is in situ on the moor.
