Incredible pictures show life in Leeds during the 1980s

These photos turn back the clock to showcase life in Leeds during the 1980s.

They turn on the spotlight on a city evolving and a decade in which sharp suits and shoulder pads were all the rage. The images are from 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.
