This was Lewis's entry to the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade for which it won Best Overall Entry. It took over 20,000 ribbon parcel bows to decorate the float. Four female staff are dressed as saloon girls complete with buttoned boots and Ostrich feather headdresses. There is a cowboy in the centre and the two North American indians are Neil Malloch, left, and Simon Riley, right, both from the Display Department of Lewis's on the Headrow. The Parade set off from Woodhouse Moor, seen here, then went down Woodhouse Lane, then Merrion Street and Vicar Lane, into Briggate then the Headrow, on to Calverley Street, past the Civic Hall to salute the Lord Mayor and finally returned to Woodhouse Moor.

Abbey Gatehouse, north of Kirkstall Abbey, lithograph (Kirkstall) (2 comments)
Black & White imageAugust 1820 Image shows a lithograph from 1820 depicting the gatehouse to the north of Kirkstall Abbey. This was before the new turnpike road was built in 1827. The gatehouse was first converted to a residence by John Ripley, the last abbot, who lived there until his death in 1568. For the next three hundred years it existed as a farmhouse and this is how we see it in this lithograph. Later, it became a gentlemans residence and was occupied by the Butler family. Eventually, Colonel Thomas Walter Harding of the Tower Works, Holbeck owned the gatehouse until he sold it to Leeds City Council in 1925. It is now part of Abbey House Museum and has only recently undergone a £2.3 million restoration, including additions to the Victorian Streets and shops.
