I've had a look at quite a number of the photos and they are excellent. Of those I saw I particularly liked that of the washing strung across a street to dry. This link is to one that amused me as I also wondered if it may be one of the bridges over the River Aire that have been mentioned in various SL threads:- [url]https://www.flickr.com/photos/75850763@N03/8226504225/in/set-72157632038808369/[/url]

One thing I have noticed in photos in such as Flickr is that the dates given may imply that is when a photo was taken but they seem to be likely that when they were uploaded.

Post posting edit: Sorry but I don't seem to be able to display a clickable link nor the image on various attempts. The photo is of a lad climbing across a bridge over a river.

It's this photo you mean Leo.

Funny you mentioned that one. I wondered if it was the same bridge you posted about a few weeks ago? I hadn't studied it properly yet myself so don't know.

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!

Cheers Phill. Yes, that's the photo I meant. I would have tried doing that climb across when I was a kid, but not now! Regular Smiley

Yes 'Dares' are a childhood past time you don't see much of these days. They always involved jumping from heights, or crossing water. Now they can't play conkers in the playground Regular Smiley

I've just noticed he's uploaded some more photos, added some dates, and better location descriptions. No doubt as a result from the increasing viewing figures and comments from facebook. The Rillbank steps photo is now dated 1974, and the rest of the photos seem to span the years 72-75.

Its the footbridge crossing the river Aire from Milford Place to Canal Rd. Just up from the railway viaduct and down from the Armley Mills museum on Canal rd..

Photo looking towards town.

That's a fascinating photo yorkiesknob. I don't know the area so to see three bridges so close was new to me.

Its one hell of a retaining wall holding up Canal Rd.

Cheers Phill for that (and correcting the originally faulty link). I may try to have a wander around the area at some stage.

It's right next to Armley Mills museum, Canal Road old railway station (eagle eyes should spot you an old gas lamp near it) And the old Botany bay shack on the canal. Lots of things to look at around there Leo Regular Smiley

You can get a good idea of the layout of things here
