Mystery Building

My photo today is called mystery building for good reason, it is to me a mystery and I have no idea who built it or why.

This building lies around midway between Wellington Street and Whitehall Road not far from the Latitude office development. The building can be seen from a train on the nearby railyway tracks and also the canal bank.

I have seen this building so often over the years but the day I took this photo was the first time I had been close to it. The slightly odd angle of the photo was due to me not wanting modern lamp posts in the picture or the nearby parked cars.

From the size of some of the stone blocks used in its construction I would hazard a guess of being built around 1840. This date was a time of expansion and growth in this part of Leeds with lots of engineering works and railway contruction.

If anyone in Leeds knows what this building was I would be pleased to know.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
