Chapel Allerton Hospital, military hospital (Unknown)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Chapel Allerton Hospital showing some of the wards that were part of the military hospital during and after the second world war. The hospital had been originally established in the First World War, run by the Ministry of Pensions to care for the many limbless service personnel who returned from the trenches. It was initially based in the stately mansion of Gledhow Grange but expanded over the years. A new wing called Newton Green was established on a site on the opposite side of Harehills Lane in the 1970s; in the 1990s a new Chapel Allerton Hospital was built alongside this, while the old site was sold off for housing.

Military Hospital, Beckett Park, postcard (Headingley)
Black & White imageUndated. This postcard entitled 'Military Hospital, Beckett Park, Leeds' presumably dates from the era of the First World War, during which time it was occupied by the 2nd Northern General Hospital. Just prior to the war it had opened up as the Leeds Training College for teachers, to which purpose it reverted back after the war. Since then, apart from a spell during the Second World War when it was used to treat the Dunkirk wounded, it has remained an educational establishment, though under different names, including the City of Leeds Carnegie College, Leeds Polytechnic and now Leeds Metropolitan University.
