They are the postcards sent from Leeds with love.

Wish you were here? These postcards sent from the city in the early 1900s provide a fascinating insight into the landmarks and oddities which promoted the city across the UK and to the world. Well-known landmarks such as Woodhouse Moor, Kirkstall Abbey and Roundhay Park are all featured as well as street scenes around the city including Wortley’s Tong Road, Headingley’s Shaw Lane and Horsforth’s Station Road. The postcards also put education in the spotlight with Chapel Allerton Council School and Moortown Council School both featured. They are published courtesy of Clifford Large and Artemis, both collections of which are housed on photographic archive Leodis, which is run by Leeds Library & Information Service.
