It appears the recreation ground was sold in 1900. Taken from The Leeds Mercury 10th Nov 1900

Holbeck C.C.moved to the ground behind the New Peacock on Elland road, whilst the rugby club played on the site of Elland Road football ground.
there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.

The white horse ground is a good shout Leo.

Thanks to Uncle Mick again.

Interesting dragging Micks maps about there's an 1875 enclosed Football/Rugby ground by the side of the Railway Viaduct in Domestic Street!!...

Also the old Low Road ground. Hunslet AFC played there for a time. It's tough matching the old clubs to the old grounds, would need hours in the library.

Sounds good though!!

I have tried dragging the maps but can't locate the ground in Domestic Street. Is it where the Lemi was? (There was a thread about the Lemi a while ago, as I recall) My parents had a shop on Geldard Road and we used to play football on the Lemi and walk across it on the way to school.

The Lemi (also known as Mill Green) was on the other side of the railway track

The ground on Domestic Street marked " Central Grounds". Here's a snippet from 12th August 1893

EDIT - This was the home of Leeds Central FC
