Armley Jail, Aerial View (Armley) (11 comments)
Black & White image22nd May 1949 View of Armley Jail, seen in the centre, now referred to as Leeds Prison. Opened in 1847, it was deliberately designed to look grim and forbidding, acting as a visual deterrant. In the top left corner is the railway line, coming from Viaduct bridge over Kirkstall Road, running towards the right edge where Armley Road is built over the line. Armley Road runs from left to right below the railway line. In the top right corner is a cleared site which had been the 'alphabet' streets in Burley. In the bottom left corner is Wortley Cemetery.
