Leeds Salem Rugby Club, team photograph (Hunslet) (1 comment)
Black & White image1929. View of Leeds Salem Rugby Club members, posing for a team photograph in 1929. The club was once connected to the Salem Congregational Church on Hunslet Road. There was a strong Church Institute there, responsible for many social events and activities, including billiards and table tennis. In 1956 the club reformed as Leeds Corinthians RUFC but has still retained links with Salem as some members have become Life Members. The current club badge, designed by the late Norman Rawnsley, depicts the white rose of Yorkshire, the Leeds Coat-of-Arms, a Corinthian helmet and three white doves of peace. These three doves each represent 10 years of the 30 years that Leeds Salem Rugby Club were in existence. Image courtesy of Ron Davies.

Salem Congregational Church (Hunslet)
Black & White image1980. View of Salem Congregational Church which was founded in 1784. The Grade II listed building was renamed Salem United Reformed Church in 1972 and the last service was held on 30th June 2002. The main entrance of the church fronts Hunslet Lane. The cleared ground in the foreground had been the site of nineteenth century cottages called South Row which were demolished post-war. Salem Church is the only surviving 18th century dissenting chapel in Leeds but has recently been restored (2009) as the Headquarters of AQL, a telecommunications services company.
