|||Abbey House Museum, Hark to Rover Inn (Kirkstall)
|c late 1960s.
View shows the inside of a Victorian public house as displayed at Abbey House Museum, part of a reconstruction of Victorian streets featuring realistic shops and other businesses, many of which can be walked in. The pub is named 'Hark to Rover' after an actual pub which was situated on Spen Lane near the junction with Abbey Road, beside the Hark to Rover cottages. It was later to be demolished and a new pub of the same name was built further along Spen Lane, which has also since closed.

Aerial view showing New York Road in the foreground becoming York Road at the Woodpecker junction. The Woodpecker public house is located at an angle on the junction. Burmantofts Street meets the junction from the left, and Marsh Lane is off to the right. At the bottom edge Quarry Hill Flats is shown which were renovated around that time. Opposite, on the other side of New York Road the long, dark building is St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church. In the Centre is the new Ebor Gardens estate built on old brickworks and demolished slum property. The wiggly 'U' shaped roads are Rigton Drive and Haslewood Drive. Burmantofts Street joins Beckett Street in the centre of the left edge and Nippet Lane runs inwards from the junction before joining Torre Road. Ebor Gardens County Primary School has not yet been built on this land at the centre of the image. Five blocks of high rise flats built on this land are from left to right; Torre Green, Torre Gardens, Oxton gardens, Oxton Place and Oxton Close. Behind them there are four more blocks in a straight line, Appleton Square, Appleton Close, Appleton Court and Saville Green. The public library and swimming baths are on bend of York Road on the right hand side.

|||America Moor Lane, Wheatsheaf Inn (Morley) (4 comments)
|Undated. The Wheatsheaf Inn on America Moor Lane, Morley, dated back to the seventeenth century and was probably the location nearby for the murder of the landlord John Fletcher by the highwayman Will Nevision, which was marked by a stone further along the lane to Howley Hall.
In the 1890s travelling theatre shows began visiting Morley and sometimes the artistes were able to stay at the Wheatsheaf Hotel. The dwarfs on the right look as if they might fall into this category. The Wheatsheaf had several sports fields around it and at least one amateur rugby team used the inn as its headquarters before the First World War. It was demolished during the 1930s.
