Following the railway line from the top edge various landmarks can be seen. To the left at the top is the huge complex of Quarry Hill Flats, moving down there is Leeds Parish Church of St. Peter, then the dome of the Corn Exchange. To the left of the Corn Exchange is Kirkgate Market fronting Vicar Lane. To the right of the station is the former Tramways Depot on Swinegate. Below that, between Neville Street and the river, is the woollen mill at School Close which, in 1973, became the site of the Dragonara Hotel (now the Leeds Hilton). The line of light buildings across the top left-hand corner are on Eastgate and include Lewis's department store. They were part of Sir Reginald Blomfield's scheme of the 1930's. The grid pattern of streets comprising the city shopping areas can be seen including Vicar Lane, Briggate and Park Row. Wellington Street comes in from the bottom left-hand coner and following the line of it City Square is visible. At the bottom edge traffic is seen in Whitehall Road and the Whitehall Mills Complex.
