Ashworth Street (Woodhouse) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Ashworth Street which ran from St. Marks Road, down across Holborn Street and ended at the back gardens of houses which fronted Institution Street. The back of the Methodist Church is visible in the distance, which fronted Woodhouse Street. Further into the distance Quarry Mount School can be seen, the building with the clock tower. To the right of the tower, on the skyline is the top thirty or forty feet of the Leeds Corporation refuse destructor chimney. It is located on Meanwood Road in Meanwood Valley and believed to be the tallest chimney for many miles at approximately 240 feet (73 metres).

Bolland Street, looking towards Quarry Mount Primary School (Woodhouse)
Colour imageAugust 1985. View looking up Bolland Street towards Quarry Mount Primary School situated on Cross Quarry Street. Terraced housing on the bottom half of Bolland Street has already been demolished and the rest would follow soon after. Houses on the far right on Thomas Street would remain intact though and are still there today (2013).

Churchfield Place (Woodhouse) (2 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Churchfield Place which ran parallel with Ashworth Street. In the distance Quarry Mount School, with distinctive clock tower, is visible. Also seen the very tall refuse destructor chimney on the skyline which is located on Meanwood Road. Also in the picture is Quarry Street up past the school to where it meets Hartley Grove. The photograph was possibly taken on a Monday, traditionally washing day, judging by the many lines of washing pegged across the street to dry.
