FACTS

This major photographic archive contains over 24,000 images from the early 1800s to the present day recording the changing face of Leeds.

The new digital archive brings together photographs from the collections in Leeds Library and Information Services, Leeds Civic Trust, Leeds Museums Service, the Thoresby Society and West Yorkshire Archives Service.

It is hoped that Leodis will soon be able to make available playbills from the Leeds Theatres

New pictures are added to the Leodis database every week.

And there is the chance to add your comments about any photo on the website.

It should contain 40,000 images by May 2003.

Copies of the pictures can also be ordered online.

The site is part of the Lottery-funded People’s Network, bringing free public internet access to every library in Leeds.

The Leodis project is provided by Leeds Library and Information Service.
