Memories from the year Leeds welcomed a Black Prince

It was the year a city welcomed a Black Prince.

Thousands turned out in City Square to catch a glimpse of the Black Prince statue which still points the way to this day. This was 1903 and the photo is one of 19 showcasing a year in the life of the city. Suburbs in focus include Little London, Osmondthorpe, Rodley, Sheepscar and Beeston. The images are 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.
