Military Hospital, Beckett Park, postcard (Headingley)
Black & White imageUndated. This postcard entitled 'Military Hospital, Beckett Park, Leeds' presumably dates from the era of the First World War, during which time it was occupied by the 2nd Northern General Hospital. Just prior to the war it had opened up as the Leeds Training College for teachers, to which purpose it reverted back after the war. Since then, apart from a spell during the Second World War when it was used to treat the Dunkirk wounded, it has remained an educational establishment, though under different names, including the City of Leeds Carnegie College, Leeds Polytechnic and now Leeds Metropolitan University.
