Beckett Park Teacher Training College, construction (Headingley)
Black & White imagec1911. View shows building work in progress on the Beckett Park Teacher Training College, set on land sold to Leeds Corporation in 1908 by Ernest Beckett, 2nd Baron Grimthorpe. The college opened in 1913 but was soon transformed into a military hospital for the period of the First World War. After the war it reverted back to a teacher training establishment and in 1933 was joined on the site by the Carnegie College of Physical Education. The two colleges merged in 1968 to become the City of Leeds Carnegie College, which became part of Leeds Polytechnic in 1976; in 1992 it was granted university status and became Leeds Metropolitan University.
