Park Row, Leeds, John Atkinson Grimshaw, 1882
I lived in Leeds , 1987-91 near Roundhay Park . Great place - had to move for a new
job . Happy memories.
This one's dreamy . . .

The artist happens to be my Great Great Uncle :-)
Much talent in the family 👍
That's fantastic! I've always loved his paintings.....I have a large book of his work which I got in the 80's when I was an art student at Newcastle Poly - it's a bit of a treasured possession as it goes.
Park Row at this time was a grand street full of banks and insurance companys. It still has some of that but is now more a home to bars and 'nightlife'. Becketts Bank (large building on right) is now the name of a Wetherspoons in a different building on the other side of the street. St. Anns RC cathedral is no longer there (moved to a site further back at the turn of the century) and the site is now the Radisson Blue popular with Nelsonians as accomodation for the album launches.
Also site of Leeds' first traffic lights
Thanks for these links 🙏 and all this information.
That has the feel of Monet in London.
