View down Eastgate to Quarry House the £55 million headquarters of the Department of Health which opened in 1993. The Health Service Management Executive re-located here from London. In the foreground is one of the designs for the Christmas lights which are switched on in early November in the Victoria Gardens. The lights are uniquely designed, (eg, the champagne bottle seen here) and are fixed to lamp posts and suspended from overhead wires. Some of the Christmas lights offer advertising space for displaying the logo of various companies. Leeds Lights was established by the council in 1983 and they are now the largest Christmas illuminations in the country with the switch on attracting over 40,000 people.

|||Footbridge over York Road Flyover, Inner Ring Road (Quarry Hill) (2 comments)
A workman on an access platform is painting the footbridge crossing the York Road flyover at Quarry Hill. It is adjacent to Quarry House which at the time was in the process of being built. The footbridge descends to St. Mary's Street at the other side, right. The red brick wall on the right is the boundary of St. Peter's Church of England Primary School, formerly St. Charles Roman Catholic School dating from 1873. St. Peter's School moved to new premises in September 1993. Below the footbridge is the eastbound York Road flyover which opened 4th February 1973.
