Buslingthorpe Lane, view to Woodhouse from (Buslingthorpe) (6 comments)
Black & White image1969. View from Buslingthorpe Lane, across Meanwood Road to Woodhouse, with the Parkinson building of Leeds University on the horizon, centre. In the foreground, at the left edge, the footbridge crosses Sheepscar Beck from Stonegate. The path continues over Buslingthorpe Green to Meanwood Road. The white building in the foreground is the premises of G.A. Donnelly & Sons, Plumbers, Heating contractors and electrical engineers at number 137 Buslingthorpe Lane. This building was formerly the Springhill Tavern. Behind it is the derelict Springwell Dyeing and Finishing Works. In the foreground, bottom, Buslingthorpe Vale runs alongside the works. Meanwood Road cuts across the middle and in the centre, on Meanwood Road, is a former branch of the Leeds Industrial Co-operative Society at number 229, at the corner with Woodhouse Street. The large, four-storey mill building, right of centre, is Perseverance Mills. Behind it is the block of high-rise flats, Holborn Towers in Shay Street. They were built in 1965 to a height of 47 metres on seventeen storeys. Further in from the top, but in line with the white Parkinson building on the horizon is St. Vincent's Roman Catholic Chapel-of-ease in Coldcall Terrace.

Marian Terrace, demolition (Woodhouse)
Black & White image15th July 1975. View shows Marian Terrace in the process of demolition. No. 26 on the left is still standing so far but houses to the right of it have been reduced to rubble.

The Parkinson tower of Leeds University is seen in the background.
