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.
