Undated Leeds Railway station images

Post by blackprince »

Among the latest additions to Leodis are 8 undated photos of old Leeds railway stations. Judging by the clothing worn by the passengers my guess is they are late Victorian or Edwardian ( say, 1900-1914).

One of my favourites is the one of Morley Low station because it really captures the movement of the people hurrying to get on the train and just look at the gent with the golf clubs.

Another one shows Clerestory Roof 3rd class coaches at New Station. From the 1909 junction diagram two companies had running rights to track in New Station: London & North Western (LNWR) and North Eastern (NER). A railway buff might be able to say which company these coaches belonged to.

It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!
