Aerial view of Leeds city showing the City Station (City Centre) (2 comments)
Black & White image17th September 1962. Aerial view over the city of Leeds showing Leeds City Station in the centre. To the left of it is the River Aire before it flows beneath the railway under the dark arches. In the bottom right-hand corner are the graving docks off the canal basin at Granary Wharf. The bridge over the canal at this point dates from 1841 and is situated at Office Lock next to the old Canal Office. Beyond where the canal and River Aire meet there is Victoria Bridge (right edge, centre) then following the bends of the river towards the top, Leeds Bridge is only just visible and in the top corner Crown Point Bridge can be seen clearly. Following the railway line from the top edge various landmarks can be seen. To the left at the top is the huge complex of Quarry Hill Flats, moving down there is Leeds Parish Church of St. Peter, then the dome of the Corn Exchange. To the left of the Corn Exchange is Kirkgate Market fronting Vicar Lane. To the right of the station is the former Tramways Depot on Swinegate. Below that, between Neville Street and the river, is the woollen mill at School Close which, in 1973, became the site of the Dragonara Hotel (now the Leeds Hilton). The line of light buildings across the top left-hand corner are on Eastgate and include Lewis's department store. They were part of Sir Reginald Blomfield's scheme of the 1930's. The grid pattern of streets comprising the city shopping areas can be seen including Vicar Lane, Briggate and Park Row. Welligton Street comes in from the bottom left-hand coner and following the line of it City Square is visible. At the bottom edge traffic is seen in Whitehall Road and the Whitehall Mills Complex.

Aerial View of Wetherby Town (Wetherby) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view in black and white showing the town of Wetherby. The River Wharfe snakes round in the foreground with a clear view of the weir. Bottom left is Micklethwaite Farm and then the Great North Road crosses the old stone bridge of six arches. The Old Mill can be seen on the western side of the bridge and behind it, the bus station. The Market Place deviates to the left, while the Great North Road continues straight on becoming the High Street, then North Street. Towards the right corner the gasholder is visible. The first gas works were installed in Wetherby in 1845 and gas lighting was in operation from 1852. The Town Hall is almost central to the image at the top of the centre section. To the left, Market Place joins West Gate which bends round to follow the river side. The Cattle Market and cattle pens are directly above the gasholder, and located in Victoria Street.

Aerial View, Kirkgate Market, Fire Damage (City Centre) (17 comments)
Black & White image14th December 1975 Aerial view looking across the destruction caused by a fire in Kirkgate Market, seen in the direction of the Eastgate roundabout. Around 4 acres of the site was destroyed in a blaze which took 110 fireman two hours to control. Most of the 1857 section of the market was destroyed although the 1904 frontage onto Vicar Lane was saved. This section, containing Butchers Row, seen to the left, reopened on Tuesday 16th December. Many of the other stalls found temporary locations in the Corn Exchange, and the George Street and Harewood Street Car Parks. A visit from Prince Charles on the 17th boosted the morale of stall holders hit by the fire.

Asda Queens Supermarket, formerly Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel, Fountain Street (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageOctober 1968. View of the former Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel in Fountain Street shortly after it had been renovated and turned into a shop and offices for the Asda Queens supermarket. In comparison to an earlier image on the Leodis website, it is possible to see that the steps and wall which separated the chapel from the causeway have been considerably altered and the trees removed. The carving has been effaced from the pediment and the memorial stones at the base of the four pillars in front of the chapel. When Asda's new supermarket and offices on the Howley Park Estate were ready, about 1970, the firm then moved up there. This building was sold to Phillip's auctioneers for nearly twenty years, and then it was bought by Handyman's Stores. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
