Life seemed grim and bleak for Leeds and its residents in 1971 with this photo of a shopper on Commercial Street looking at the camera summing up the mood of many. The gloom of the 12 months was punctuated with some hope and laughter. The Rolling Stones took to the stage for a gig which is still remembered to this day while a group of Ukrainian dancers lifted spirits on the Town Hall steps.
