View shows a group of Salvation Army members outside their Citadel on Coupland Road. This was a wooden building with a corrugated iron roof situated just off Main Street. When the alignment of the junction with Main Street was changed in 1927 the Citadel had to be demolished. Included in the picture, from left to right, are : back row - Philip Mallison, Albert Kilburn, Gilbert Mallison; middle row - John Higgins, Tommy Kilburn (bandmaster), Major D. Thornton and an unknown female officer; front row - children Molly Mallison and Peggy Mallison

|||Coupland Road's Salvation Army Citadel (Garforth)
Just visible on the right-hand side is the Salvation Army Citadel, which was situated on Coupland Road. The view down one street is towards the recreation grounds. Garforth had a very active Salvation Army unit, which included a band who would play at Town End every Sunday.

|||Shaftesbury House, from the corner of Lady Pit Lane and Coupland Road (Beeston)
|7th March 2008.
Image shows Shaftesbury House, the former hostel for the homeless, from the junction with Coupland Road, left, and Lady Pit Lane, foreground. Work has begun by developers, Citu, to convert the 1938 building to a mix of residential apartments and office space. The scheme is called 'The Greenhouse' as the focus is on providing a sustainable, zero-carbon environment, implementing solar heating and rooftop wind turbines. In 1938 Shaftesbury House was considered a showpiece, catering for over 500 homeless people. Sixty staff were employed here, including a barber, a boot repairer and laundry workers.
