Aerial View, City Station and River Aire (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image1964 The area seen in this aerial photo was the foundation for the wealth and growth of Leeds. The River Aire runs from the top right corner and then goes under the City Railway Station through the Dark Arches and emerges on the left. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal basin is here, many buildings have been restored and the area landscaped. Granary Wharf craft market and shops provide interest. Victoria Bridge spans the river here, leading to Briggate. This was the site of the cloth markets which generated the growth of Leeds. The City Station was built on land on which the Kings Mill had once stood, it was constructed on arches across a number of weirs and goits. The Kings Mill had ground corn for the people of Leeds. In the bottom left corner is triangular shaped Leeds Bridge House at the beginning of Hunslet Road. Moving up, next is Hunslet Lane, then Meadow Lane. The Hunslet area was heavily industrialised with engine works leather, foundries, potteries etc. In the top left corner is the Holbeck area where Matthew Murray had his engineering works, John Marshall built his flax mill and early industry thrived.
