|||Ackroyd Street, number 20, grocery shop and off license (Morley) (1 comment)
View of number 20 Ackroyd Street, a grocery business and off licence. Ackroyd Street is visible on the far right, but there is an entrance on Annie Street, seen in the foreground. To the left the shop is at the junction with Annie Square. In Kelly's Directory of the West Riding of Yorkshire for 1917 the shop was run by Horace Kenyon, Grocer and Wine & Spirit Merchant. There is some faded advertising on the exterior wall. At the right edge of the image there is the stone built Salvation Army Hall in Ackroyd Street. The foundation stone for this was laid in 1907 and the building replaced the old barracks in Albion Street.

|1907. Councillor J. T. Horsfall laying a memorial stone at the Salvation Army's new citadel at the corner of Ackroyd Street and Marshall Street.

|||Branksome Street from the junction with Queen's Road (Hyde Park) (1 comment)
This view taken by Eric Jaquier in 1969 shows children playing at the junction of Queen's Road and Branksome Street (the short street of terraced housing seen in the background). It has a high wall running along the far end. The houses with the small gardens on the left of the picture are actually the backs of numbers 28 to 34 Alexandra Road. The houses on the right are the backs, with back yards, of numbers 2 to 12 Branksome Terrace. The chimney seen belongs to Spring Grove House, a Salvation Army Industrial Home for women. The 1947 Directory of Leeds lists Major Goulding as the warden. Nowadays, the dome of the Leeds Hindu Mandir, the first Hindu Temple to be built in Leeds, towers behind the wall. The temple is situated at number 36 Alexandra Road.
