10 historic photos take you back to Leeds in 1898

These historic photos turn back the clock 125 years to celebrate a year in the life of Leeds.

1898 is the focus for this gallery of evocative photos charting a year in the life of your city and its residents. The memories start with the city centre before heading out into the suburbs with Roundhay Park and Holbeck both featured. The images are a mix from the YEP archive and others published courtesy of photographic archive Leodis, which is run by Leeds Library & Information Service. They also run heritage blog The Secret Library Leeds, which provides a behind the scenes look at the Central Library and highlights from its special collections, including rare books hidden away in the stacks.
