Trawling for photos of King's Mills, Isle of Cynder etc I came across these photo images of Leeds Central Market on Duncan Street.The first two'21st June 1895. 2 views of Central Market on Duncan Street, taken during improvements and repairs following a fire in 1893'. This gives some hope for finding Isle of Cynder photos. All are on Leodis search Central Market +/or Central Rd.Finally I have a postcard image, sadly undated, of 'Corn Exchange, Leeds' which shows the Central Market Building well.

What absolutely wonderful pictures - and stunning to see that this square building preceded the present "curved" shops which now lead round into Market Street.Amazing to me ,too, is the fact that my dear old Dad would have been just five years old and would have no doubt been taken shopping from his home in Carlton Hill - if only those folks could come back now, and tell us what it was really like then eh ??
There's nothing like keeping the past alive - it makes us relieved to reflect that any bad times have gone, and happy to relive all the joyful and fascinating experiences of our own and other folks' earlier days.
