Leeds in the Seventies.   Leave a comment

An old house mate of mine forwarded this link recently.

The pictures show what the older parts of Leeds looked like in the seventies.

I arrived in Leeds straight from school in 1969 and left in 1978 when I moved to Poole. Although I don’t remember these specific locations, except Quarry Hill flats which I often walked through on my way home from the city centre. Its amazing to think that there was only one telephone for all those people.

Five of us lived in a very run down area near the centre. The house we rented was compulsory purchased not long after we left, we believe the landlords were given £260 for it !
