Aerial View, City Station and River Aire (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image1964 The area seen in this aerial photo was the foundation for the wealth and growth of Leeds. The River Aire runs from the top right corner and then goes under the City Railway Station through the Dark Arches and emerges on the left. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal basin is here, many buildings have been restored and the area landscaped. Granary Wharf craft market and shops provide interest. Victoria Bridge spans the river here, leading to Briggate. This was the site of the cloth markets which generated the growth of Leeds. The City Station was built on land on which the Kings Mill had once stood, it was constructed on arches across a number of weirs and goits. The Kings Mill had ground corn for the people of Leeds. In the bottom left corner is triangular shaped Leeds Bridge House at the beginning of Hunslet Road. Moving up, next is Hunslet Lane, then Meadow Lane. The Hunslet area was heavily industrialised with engine works leather, foundries, potteries etc. In the top left corner is the Holbeck area where Matthew Murray had his engineering works, John Marshall built his flax mill and early industry thrived.

Black & White imageUndated, but taken sometime in the 1890s the photo shows a curved row of 3-storey, brick built terraced retail premises, all of which appear to be empty. The building is covered in posters advertising an auction for the sale of building materials following street improvements. There are also other advertisements. There is a horse and cart waiting by the roadside and several men passing by, one of whom is looking at the photographer and carrying some kind of pail or basket.

Bridge End, Old Leeds Bridge (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image1869. This view taken in 1869 by A. Macaulay and reproduced by Leeds City Engineers in 1909, shows Bridge End by the old Leeds Bridge which is seen on the right. Shops in the building in the centre appear to be empty and boarded up, in contrast to photos on Leodis taken earlier in the year. The large notice, on the gable end facing the camera, reads: “Bridge End Bottling ……..?, H. Whitehead, Dealer in India Pale & Mild Ales & Beers ? ? ?", then beneath it says "Fernandes & Co. Draught Ales & Porter Store ? ? Hop Merchant” In the 1867 Kelly’s Directory of Leeds, Henry Whitehead, Ale & Porter Dealer is listed at number 23 Bridge End (at the junction with Meadow Lane and Water Lane). Fernandes & Co. are listed next door, at number 22, as brewers. The sign immediately below the large notice board reads “Hyam ?, Attire for Little Boys” Hyam & co. drapers, tailors, hosiers, hatters, wholesale outfitters & export clothiers is listed at number 42 Briggate in the 1867 Directory. It was a national firm and Thomas S. Hollway was the Leeds manager at this time. Since these addresses are not listed in a 1872 directory of Leeds, it would seem that buildings on this side of Bridge End were demolished along with the Old Bridge which was pulled down later in 1869; the new Leeds Bridge opened in 1873 on the same site.

This was the first of the Million Churches built in Leeds, so called because of a special Goverment grant of £1,000,000 which was used to build over 600 churches across the country. The church is built in the decorated style with a square tower and pinnacles along each side. It was demolished in 1972.
