Lost Leeds - a ghost tour of a kind
Leeds has lost many historic buildings. Some were in poor repair or no longer had a viable use; others were simply out of fashion or in the way of change. We lament some of the losses, but what about the implications of much more comprehensive preservation of historic structures? And what would it have been like if some bold dreams of the past had been implemented, instead of being shelved as regimes changed or finance failed to materialise? What do we think of the scenes that are the reality, minus the lost gems or dreams?
This is a thought-provoking exploration of things that aren't there.
