Changing Leeds - Life on Duncan Street down the decades

It's the short city centre street that links Leeds's famous two Bs - Boar Lane and Briggate.

Duncan Street was originally known as Fleet Street, which changed following the Napoleonic Wars when Admiral Adam Duncan achieved a memorable victory over the Dutch fleet at the Battle of Camperdown in 1797. These photos, plucked from the YEP archive, showcase life on the street - home to city drinking institution The Duncan and once well-known school outfitters Rawcliffes - down the decades.
