A wall divides the street, the corner of an outside toilet can be seen on the right. The houses have cellars, these were often rented out as separate homes for whole families with no water, heat or other facilities - they were appalling conditions to live in. This was one of the Leeds Unhealthy Areas, listed for improvement.
