Leeds in the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies
"Leeds in the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies" is a fascinating collection of photographs of the city, from the archives of the "Yorkshire Evening Post". If you lived in Leeds in these times you will reminisce about times gone by.
All aspects of daily life in the city are documented in these images including buildings, transport and the people of Leeds: tradesmen, office workers, postmen, millworkers, shoppers.
Although the book covers a comparatively recent chapter in Leeds' history, the changes in the city have been dramatic. In the 1950s the buildings of Leeds were black with soot, and mill chimneys still dotted the landscape.
By the end of the 1970s the city was already a very different place, and the pace of change has continued unabated. Buildings have been demolished or remodelled and traffic has been redirected along the inner relief road.
The images in "Leeds in the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies" are sure to bring back memories for many Leeds residents.
