Harrogate Road, looking south (Moortown)
Black & White image16th August 1935. This view looking south along Harrogate Road was taken before the improvement scheme began which led to this section of the road becoming a dual carriageway. On the left is a stone wall with many mature trees behind; this was the grounds of The Mount, a large house which was later to become Ingledew College for Girls and is currently (2017) the site of Ingledew Court apartments. The entrance way just seen on the left is the back door approach to The Mount. Gas streetlamps can be seen on the pavement. The opposite side of the road has more mature trees and a line of multi-branched telegraph poles running into the distance. The junction with Nursery Lane is just seen on the bottom right.

High Royds Hospital, Bradford Road (Menston)
Black & White imageUndated. This atmospheric image shows High Royds Hospital in its early years in the background. It opened on 8th October 1888 with the grim name of West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. The hospital underwent many positive changes over the years and in the 1930s patients had the opportunity to develop new skills with the addition of such trades as a cobblers, upholsterers and a dairy. There was also a library and a ballroom. The Victorian buildings were impractical and archaic, however, and a new Mental Health provision was built. The final phase was the opening of the Mount by Health Secretary, Alan Milburn on 4th April 2003. At 10 million pounds, it was the culmination of a £47 million scheme comprising 7 new units with state of the art facilities. High Royds Hospital finally closed its doors in February 2003.
