Alderman Brook's House (Hunslet) (17 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Alderman Brook's house, Hunslet Lane. Large brick house now demolished. "A guide published in 1808 described Hunslet as 'a little more than a mile from Leeds'. Between the two places was a country lane - Hunslet Lane to Leeds people, and Leeds Lane to Hunslet people - and bordering it were fine residences. Of the few remaining, that know as Alderman Brook's house, is one of the most striking. It is notable for the geat number of windows, and also for the length of the building" (Mattison A and Meakin W 1908, The Romance of Old Leeds). Photograph Alf Mattison.
