Branch Road, postcard view (Armley) (11 comments)
Black & White imagec1907/1908. Early postcard view showing Branch Road from the junction with Canal Road. Several people and a dog are visible standing in Branch Road. The main focus of the image is the Primitive Methodist Chapel, built at a cost of £6,000 to designs by Thomas Howdill, architect, and his son Charles Barker Howdill. It is constructed in a Free Renaissance style and is now a listed building. It was built to replace the original 1876 chapel at the rear (later the Western Cinema) which was also designed by Thomas Howdill, though this was in a Romanesque style. To the right of the chapel is Stanningley Road and at the left edge is Crab Lane. Just beyond the Chapel, in Branch Road, is the junction with Beech Drive.
