Back Francis Street seen from the junction with Nassau Place (Chapeltown)
Black & White image1971. View of properties in Back Francis Street, this part of which ran between and parallel to Francis Street and Louis Street. Back Francis Street is photographed from Nassau Place (foreground). These are large, through terraced homes, fronting the south side of Francis Street at the other side. This part of the street is situated between Nassau Place and Hamilton Place and, from the foreground back, the houses number 32 to 56. In the background the white building is at the corner with Hamilton Place and Back Francis Street, fronting, and with gardens stretching onto Louis Street. It is numbered as 47a Louis Street, is still there and was later converted to a shop. This area, bordered by Francis Street, Hamilton Place and Louis Street, was demolished and rebuilt as Hamilton Gardens and Back Francis Street was renamed as such. The section of Nassau Place (in foreground) between Francis Street and Louis Street became absorbed into the development. As originally Nassau Place ran from Leopold Street to Harehills Avenue. The remaining section of Back Francis Street, running from Hamilton Place to Frankland Place, was renamed Frankland Grove and is to the left of the white property mentioned above. (Information from Paul Burniston.)
