An archive of over 60,000 images of Leeds: visit the Leodis website to browse the full collection. This photographic archive brings together collections held by Leeds Libraries as well as collections from West Yorkshire Archive Service, the Thoresby Society, Leeds Civic Trust and Leeds Museums and Galleries. In addition, many individual donations have been added to the website (please contact the Local and Family History department if you have photographs you wish to share with us).
The website has recently relaunched (April 2021) – you can read more about that relaunch and the features available elsewhere on the blog.
The Leodis Collection is used for a wide range of purposes. One particularly interesting project was Leeds Libraries’ involvement with Historypin; click here to read more about people sharing their stories and memories of Leeds.
Finally, you can read an in-depth account of how the Leodis site came into being in a short history elsewhere on the blog.
