|||Aerial View, looking North (City Centre) (1 comment)
In the centre of the top edge of this view, the Leeds General Infirmary (1869) is visible with a semi-circular road to the front. The Town Hall (1858) can be seen in the top right corner. In the centre of the right edge are Park Square (1788 - 1810) and St Paul's House (1878). In front of this runs St Paul's Street becoming West Street. The road which is second from the right on the bottom edge is Queen Street, West Street begins at this junction.

|||Caroline Street nos. 33 & 35, West Street No. 20 (rear) (City Centre) (1 comment)
View shows a small yard to the rear of properties on Caroline Street. On the left edge is a large brick built outbuilding. The back entrance of number 20 West Street is at the end of the yard with numbers 35 & 33 Caroline Street following to the right. A group of young girls pause in their game to have a photograph taken. They have been playing hopscotch in the yard on a grid chalked on the stone flaggs. The young mother of the little blonde girl seen on the extreme left stands in the doorway of number 33, right. A small girl leans against the drainpipe between the two houses. On the left there is a small door in the gable end of the single storey building which would have been the access to the 'midden', via which refuse and waste was deposited.

|||Design for East and West Street (City Centre)
Reproduced from an artists impression in the Yorkshire Post, this view is supposedly from Park Lane looking North East. The design of these buildings are remarkably similar to those used for Headrow buildings.
