Photos showcase life in Little London during the 1980s

It's a corner of Leeds whose fashionable housing and interesting architecture was once up a time comparable with that London.

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.
