Aerial view of Leeds city showing the City Station (City Centre) (2 comments)
Black & White image17th September 1962. Aerial view over the city of Leeds showing Leeds City Station in the centre. To the left of it is the River Aire before it flows beneath the railway under the dark arches. In the bottom right-hand corner are the graving docks off the canal basin at Granary Wharf. The bridge over the canal at this point dates from 1841 and is situated at Office Lock next to the old Canal Office. Beyond where the canal and River Aire meet there is Victoria Bridge (right edge, centre) then following the bends of the river towards the top, Leeds Bridge is only just visible and in the top corner Crown Point Bridge can be seen clearly. Following the railway line from the top edge various landmarks can be seen. To the left at the top is the huge complex of Quarry Hill Flats, moving down there is Leeds Parish Church of St. Peter, then the dome of the Corn Exchange. To the left of the Corn Exchange is Kirkgate Market fronting Vicar Lane. To the right of the station is the former Tramways Depot on Swinegate. Below that, between Neville Street and the river, is the woollen mill at School Close which, in 1973, became the site of the Dragonara Hotel (now the Leeds Hilton). The line of light buildings across the top left-hand corner are on Eastgate and include Lewis's department store. They were part of Sir Reginald Blomfield's scheme of the 1930's. The grid pattern of streets comprising the city shopping areas can be seen including Vicar Lane, Briggate and Park Row. Welligton Street comes in from the bottom left-hand coner and following the line of it City Square is visible. At the bottom edge traffic is seen in Whitehall Road and the Whitehall Mills Complex.

Canal Basin looking towards Office Lock, watercolour by Pete Lapish (Holbeck)
Colour imageWatercolour painting by Yorkshire artist, Pete Lapish, with a view from the Canal Basin looking in the direction of Office Lock. The bridge (number 226) is very old, dating from 1841, but replaces an earlier one still, from the 1770s. Just over the bridge is Office Lock and the old, single storey canal office, visible behind the green barge. The bridge, the office and the lock are all Grade II listed. The italianate campaniles are also Grade II listed and belong to Tower Works in Globe Road. This was the firm of Harding & Son, makers of needles and steel pins. The area to the right, just off camera, has recently seen new development by Isis, established by British Waterways, with the construction of Candle House, the City Inn Hotel and Waterman's Place . This mixed-use scheme is known collectively as Granary Wharf. Some images by Pete Lapish are available to purchase as postcards or greetings cards from Leeds Visitor Centre - see our 'useful links' page.
