In front of this is the Halifax Building while in front of this is the grey outdoor carpark and white exterior of the Merrion Centre. The green dome in the distance belongs to Harehills Lane Temple while the tower block on the left is Tower House.

Aerial view probably mid 1960s. Leeds Town Hall can be seen to the left of centre. Behind is the newer Civic Hall, with twin towers and car park behind. The Woodhouse Lane area behind the Civic Hall has been cleared for the building of the Inner Ring Road. Moving across towards the right a complex of white buildings is the Merrion Centre, which opened in 1964.

|||Aerial View, City Centre with Rockingham Street Bus Station (City Centre) (6 comments)
Woodhouse Lane is on the left from the middle edge at an angle to the bottom edge. To the right, in the middle of the photo is a large car park and Rockingham Street Bus Station. During the Second World War a static water tank for emergency use had been constructed on the car park area. Prior to that, part of the land facing Woodhouse Lane had been the site of Albion Brewery. The Merrion Centre was to be built on this site, which would include the bus station.
