Dog Kennels, Woodhouse Moor (Woodhouse)
Black & White imageUndated, before 1867. A row of three stone cottages with walled gardens. There are at least three different stories to explain the name 'Dog Kennels'. Some think the buildings were used to kennel a pack of hounds owned by neighbouring gentry. The keepers of the hounds were allowed to stay in residence after the pack had been disbanded and the family stayed until the houses were bought by the council. Another theory is that the houses were lived in by the keepers employed by the local family but no dogs were kept there. It is also thought that Leeds executioners may have lived there. They had to be housed away from civilised persons. During the 'dog-days' executioners were allowed to catch all stray dogs. The phrase 'dog-days' means the hottest time of the year at the end of July, beginning of August when the dog star Sirius is visible. The Romans believed that the star was responsible for the heat. A drinking fountain is now on the site of these cottages. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.

Lewis's steam engine of the American West, entry to the 7th Annual Lord Mayor's Parade (City Centre)
Colour image21st June 1980. This spectacular float was Lewis's entry to the 7th Annual Lord Mayor's Parade, seen here on Woodhouse Moor before departure. The staff of Lewis's department store had constructed the steam engine of the American West, using bales of straw covered in over 20,000 red, green and gold ribbon bows of type used on parcels. The theme of the parade was 'Leeds into the 80s'. Lewis's staff can be seen in costume derived from the American West, including native North americans and 'saloon girls'. Lewis's won the 'Lord Mayor's Award for Best Overall Entry'.
