A Study Day to discover the changing face of Leeds architecture in the 1800’s, from a modest Georgian town to a great Victorian city using collections not normally on display including rare maps, prints, photographs, bills and letterheads.

Join us for a Study Day to discover the changing face of Leeds in the 1800’s, from humble back-to-backs to grand public buildings. Who were the architects who transformed a modest Georgian town into a great Victorian city? How did the town’s building reflect the lives of its inhabitants and how much remains today? Explore these changes through collections not on display, including rare maps, prints, photographs, bills and letterheads.
