Abbey Gatehouse, north of Kirkstall Abbey, lithograph (Kirkstall) (2 comments)
Black & White imageAugust 1820 Image shows a lithograph from 1820 depicting the gatehouse to the north of Kirkstall Abbey. This was before the new turnpike road was built in 1827. The gatehouse was first converted to a residence by John Ripley, the last abbot, who lived there until his death in 1568. For the next three hundred years it existed as a farmhouse and this is how we see it in this lithograph. Later, it became a gentlemans residence and was occupied by the Butler family. Eventually, Colonel Thomas Walter Harding of the Tower Works, Holbeck owned the gatehouse until he sold it to Leeds City Council in 1925. It is now part of Abbey House Museum and has only recently undergone a £2.3 million restoration, including additions to the Victorian Streets and shops.

Gledhow Lane, Woodland Lane and Church Lane, junction (Chapel Allerton) (2 comments)
Black & White image25th April 1933. View shows the junction of Gledhow Lane (right), Woodland Lane (left) and Church Lane (behind the camera). The stone building on the right is the lodge to a large house named Allerton Park, which in the mid 19th century had been known as Blue Villa. This house is still there along with the right archway, and is marked on recent maps as Manor Lodge, but the archway to the left has been demolished. Semi-detached houses are under construction on the left, with a notice on the left archway saying "Houses for sale, G & H Stephenson & Co. Ltd., Alwoodley". The houses are numbered in ascending order from 48 Woodland Lane, though no sign of earlier numbers on Woodland Lane is evident. The junction has since changed a little, firstly with King George Avenue joining it, and later Church Lane being rerouted slightly to the south.
