Bellbrook Place , numbers 1 to 3, off Foundry Lane (Harehills)
6th June 1939. View of numbers 1 and 3 Bellbrooke Place off Foundry Lane, now called Foundry Approach. These houses have large bay windows and small gardens with a low wall and hedges. Other blocks of houses similar to these run parallel in blocks of threes, and these may also have originally been built as three as, on a map dated 1933, number 1 is larger in size than number 3 and there appear to have been three entrances. Several of these blocks at the start of the Bellbrookes were demolished in the 1940s for road widening which never actually took place. The people are walking in Bellbrooke Street. Bellbrooke Place continues with number 5 at the other side of the junction with Bellbrooke Street.

Former site of Killingbeck Farmhouse (Killingbeck)
Undated. This spot is the former site of Killingbeck Farmhouse which was later converted to the administration block of the new Smallpox Hospital built c1915. This was on a separate site to the main Killingbeck Hospital which at the same time was converted for the specialist treatment of tuberculosis. Farming in this area goes back centuries and is evidenced by the lynchets running between Foundry Lane and the farm site. Lynchets are banks of earth left by continued ploughing of the slope over many years. Killingbeck Farm once provided eggs and poultry for the patients of Killingbeck and Seacroft Hospitals.
