Black & White imageUndated. c.1908. Residence of Captain Adam Baynes, member for Leeds in the Commonwealth Parliament. The hall stands in large gardens and at one time there was a beautiful pleasance. This was entered through a gateway which had a statue at either side (Mattison A and Meakin W 1908 The Romance of Old Leeds). The photograph shows a stone built house viewed from the front. Five children stand near arched doorway. Photograph by Alf Mattison. The photographer Alfred Mattison was born in Hunslet in 1868. His passion for local history led to lecturing, photography and writing. In 1908 he wrote "The Romance of Old Leeds" based on his articles and photos for the Yorkshire Daily Observer. He died following a street accident in Leeds in Sept 1944.
