Portrait of Leeds
Portrait of Leeds
  • Description
Leeds has transformed itself in recent years from a run-down former textile town to be one of the most popular shopping cities in Britain. The coming of the top fashion store Harvey Nichols to a site in Briggate sealed this transformation, and other top names soon followed. Briggate, with its range of superb Victorian yards and arcades, Corn Exchange and the famous period music hall of the City Varieties, may be the commercial heart of Leeds, but the civic centre revolved around Brodrick’s magnificent town Hall in the Headrow. Now the monolithic white Civic Hall lords it over the new civic centre grouped around Nelson Mandela Gardens. John Morrison’s affectionate and revealing photographic survey of his home city does not just concentrate on the new Leeds, but also offers glimpses of the older, more traditional cityscape of back-to-back terraces, former textile mills and factories along the revamped waterfront of the River Aire. ISBN 1841143782, hardback, 214x230mm, 144 pages.
