West Leeds in focus - Memories of Armley and Bramley during the 1960s and 1970s
They are the photos which are sure to evoke memories for a generation of west Leeds residents who grew up in and around Armley and Bramley.
They were taken by Richard Collier after he returned to the city having emigrated Down Under with his mum and dad. He was keen to capture on camera the changes which had occured in the community in which he grew up. "When we came back from Australia in 1969, I took the camera I had bought on Norfolk Island ( a Nikon) around Armley and Bramley to see what was left after all the stupid demolition. They were taken as slides, so that my parents in Melbourne could see them on a screen," recalls Richard.
