Leeds Central Bus Station and Quarry Hill Flats from the railway embankment (City Centre)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Leeds Central Bus Station, centre, and Quarry Hill Flats, dominating the background. In the foreground the former graveyard, now disused, belonging to St. Peter's Church is laid out with paths and seating and daffodils are in bloom. The railway line bisected the old graveyard so this view is from the embankment. Also visible is the hexagonal petrol filling station at the junction of Eastgate with St. Peter's Street. Behind it is the Marquis of Granby Hotel and the Employment Exchange.
