Photo shows Roundhay Park Upper and Lower Lakes at top middle.

Soldiers Field, still in existence, is just below the lakes, with Princess Avenue, lined by trees is seen prior to Trams running alongside it.

Arrowhead shaped building in photo centre, was the old Astoria Dancing Hall situated alongside Wetherby Road. The early construction of Easterly Road, eventually to join up with Wetherby Road at Seacroft can be seen as a new cutting in the fields and woods, snaking away to the right.
