Photo gems showcase Meanwood in the 1960s

Meanwood Tannery and Meanwood Institute are just two of the landmarks featured in this rewind to the 1960s.

They capture life in the suburb during a decade of change and showcase shops and streets some of which have since been demolished which are now no more after being part of the area's slum clearance plans. They are published courtesy of West Yorkshire Archive Service which collects and looks after the unique documentary heritage of the region dating from the 12th century to the present day - more than 800 years of local history. It also runs Catablogue, an online blog dedicated to preserving the past, serving the present and protecting the future. READ MORE: 19 unseen photos of Meanwood through the years LOVE LEEDS?
