Roundhay Park, geese at Upper Lake (Roundhay)
Black & White imageSeptember 1938. A young boy feeds and admires the geese next to the Upper Lake at Roundhay Park. These native geese have since become a rarer sight, thanks to increasing numbers of Canada geese, which were first introduced to Britain in the 17th century. The boy is captured next to a pram in characteristic style of the time. This image was digitised as part of the ‘Future Prospects of Urban Parks’ project, conducted by the University of Leeds in partnership with Leeds City Council, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number: AH/N001788/1).
