Another of Eric Miles 1970's leeds.

On the same roll of (?) truprint film he'd been up Park Lane/Belle Vue Rd looking over Burley Rd + Kirkstall road beyond.

But does anyone recognise this one? - it might not be there, but the geography accords to that.

I'd hazard a guess that it's looking down Westfield Crescent towards Burley Rd and the two shops in the original are now C+T tyres to the left and the converted former newsagents on the right, with YTV in the background.

The nearest I can get is this...

Probably taken from Rosebank Rd but new houses and shrubbery now seem to be in the way.

Thanks folks, yes it does look like that. The roof lights of the building straight ahead accord with YTV flat roof next to studio road
