The day Leeds United fans and a city celebrated winning the First Division title in 1992

It was the day Leeds and its football club were champions together.

The city centre was turned white, yellow, and blue as more than 150,000 people turned out to watch the club parade the Division One trophy through the streets on an open-topped bus. “Memories like these can’t be bought," admitted manager Howard Wilkinson."There’ll never be another day like this." And right-back Mel Sterland would also recall of the occasion: "You had people up trees and hanging from lampposts. The streets were packed. Young kids, old men - it felt like the whole city came out to see us that day. In some ways we were amazed, but that’s how much a title means." These photos, plucked from the YEP archive, aim to evoke happy memories of that special Sunday afternoon in May 1992.
