Colour imageJuly 1981. View of Harehills Lane showing Troy Garage, boarded up for protection as a result of riots in the area, but proclaiming Business As Usual. The riots, which sprung up in the Chapeltown area, followed on from riots in other parts of the country such as Brixton and Toxteth, and were primarily racially motivated, though other factors such as social deprivation, poor housing and high unemployment also caused a lot of tension.
