That's how Little London was given its name back in the 19th century. Fast forward to 1980s and this collection of photos showcase life in the community throughout a ten year period. They are a mix from the YEP archive and others published courtesy of 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.
