37 never seen before photos of Kirkstall through the years

Is this the Kirkstall you remember?

These photos have been plucked from the Yorkshire Evening Post archive and predominantly showcase life in the suburb during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. They feature local landmarks, street scenes such as Kirkstall Road, as well as pubs, restaurants and shops that you may remember. And they are also the focus of some news stories from back in the day.
