Branksome Street from the junction with Queen's Road (Hyde Park) (1 comment)
Black & White image1969. This view taken by Eric Jaquier in 1969 shows children playing at the junction of Queen's Road and Branksome Street (the short street of terraced housing seen in the background). It has a high wall running along the far end. The houses with the small gardens on the left of the picture are actually the backs of numbers 28 to 34 Alexandra Road. The houses on the right are the backs, with back yards, of numbers 2 to 12 Branksome Terrace. The chimney seen belongs to Spring Grove House, a Salvation Army Industrial Home for women. The 1947 Directory of Leeds lists Major Goulding as the warden. Nowadays, the dome of the Leeds Hindu Mandir, the first Hindu Temple to be built in Leeds, towers behind the wall. The temple is situated at number 36 Alexandra Road.
