In the top left corner is a day nursery in the former Cliffe House, the building across the top middle was the Health Center which has since been rebuilt.

Bottom left is the former Coop stores, now Yeadon library.

The small square building behind the library and to the left of the Town Hall was a block of public lavatories which have been demolished. The Town Hall dominates the scene, Chapel Hill is to the right of the Town Hall.

The former Primitive Methodist Chapel, now offices, is bottom right with Yeadon Methodist Church immediately behind. The blue door on the right leads to the present Methodist Church.

The grassed area in front of the church was the Wesleyan Methodist burial ground, this section is now a car park.
