Footbridge over York Road Flyover, painting in progress (Quarry Hill) (1 comment)
Colour imagec1991/2. Two workmen on an access platform are painting the footbridge over York Road Flyover. The footbridge crosses the road from Quarry House, the Department of Health and Social Security, (under construction at the time of this image) to St. Mary's Street. Behind the workers the playground of St. Peter's Church of England Primary School is visible with red brick walls surrounding it. The school re-located to a new site in Cromwell Street in 1993, situated behind the old site. The old red brick building dates from 1873 when it opened as St. Charles Roman Catholic School. The high rise flats in the background are Cromwell Heights, off Cromwell Street.

Mabgate and Burmantofts, aerial view (Mabgate) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of the Mabgate (left) and Burmantofts (right) areas of the city. In the centre the 3 tower blocks of Cromwell Heights look to be recently built as the road layout around is yet to be completed. Cromwell Street is to the right of these with Green Road (now Lincoln Green Road) running from left to right across the centre and Cherry Row leading up to the top. Further blocks of flats appear to be under construction in the background, right; these are probably Spalding Towers and Grantham Towers, with Boston Towers yet to be built to the left of them. St. Mary's Church is in the foreground with St. Mary's Street in front and St. Charles R.C. School on the bottom left. At the top left is the junction of Sheepscar Street South, Cross Stamford Street and Regent Street.

St. Mary's Church, Mabgate (Mabgate) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. View of St. Mary's Church in Mabgate which was demolished in the 1970s. This was one of three "Million" or "Waterloo" churches to be built in Leeds and it dated from 1823. The 'Million Act' was brought in at the close of the Napoleonic Wars when a Church Building Commission was set up. £1 million was ear-marked for the building of new churches in urban areas. The other two churches to be built with the aid of this parliamentary grant were St. Mark's of Woodhouse and Christ Church in Meadow Lane. In the background, left, Cromwell Heights is visible.
