Help please, I don't know where this is, or if it is Leeds.
Came across this on the web, described as 'mucky leeds' etc.

Has a look of round by the Chemic/Woodhouse to my untrained 1960's eyes.

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

Just looking on street view from the other side, a set of new remodelled steps are still there, although the view is much changed from yesteryear

All that lovely stone flag + cobbles.
The last pic with dog+lamp is lovely.

Also a lot to be said for black + white pics. Colour has it's place but seems to sometimes detract from the structural functionalism of the subject. It looks right.
