Far right at no 3 Town Street is the old police station and the building on the left of it is Temperance Hall.

|||Briggate, Police Station (Garforth)
View of the old Police Station on Briggate, as Main Street was known at the time, seen from near the junction at Town End. The station transferred to new premises on Lidgett Lane in the 1970s, and this site is now the car park of Pease of Garforth, hardware and D.I.Y. store. The building to the left of the Police Station was the local co-operartive, which featured grocer's, butcher's and draper's departments.

|||Brotherton House, Police Station (City Centre) (2 comments)
View looks from the Westgate roundabout, now part of the Inner Ring Road, onto Brotherton House which was the headquarters of Leeds Police Force between 1965 and 1976. The building had originally belonged to a chemical manufacturing company. To the left is a semi-circular section of windows and balconies. The building is still standing and still used as police administration offices. Grace Street runs along the back of the building with St Paul's Street just visible on the right edge.
