Long before the area of Sovereign Street and The Calls became fashionable apartments, restaurants etc. etc. I, as an eight year old, would travel from Dewsbury to Leeds, alone. Get off the bus at the terminus in Sovereign Street and walk along Call Lane and The Calls on my way to the Leeds City Transport bus station, past The Market. The street lighting in Sovereign Street etc, was dim at its best. At seven o'clock on a winter's evening one did not loiter around.

Evening time on Sovereign Street.

beyond the loading dock is the back scene.

Thanks for your comments, joshv8. Much appreciated. The building and pictures of the scrap yard are mentioned in my Diesels to Glenburnie thread.

Please make certain that Barnbow Munitions DO keep to health & safety
or the layout could be decimated !!

Health and safety ‘went wrong’ at Barnbow on 5th December 1916. See page 1 of this thread about half way down.

Having acquired some warehouse card buildings from Mountain, a bit of 'fiddling about' to get some to fit in the required space.

The small building at the end of the station building has been removed. Cobbles in the process of being laid.

Two views looking towards the new warehouses taken from Sovereign Street Station. Now (hopefully) giving a more enclosed feel to the station area.

Now to tidy things up. :)

Thanks for your comments End2end. Glad you like the picture.

I am trying to achieve an enclosed feel to the layout at Sovereign Street with warehouses; and the fact that land in a city centre is valuable, therefore the station is 'squeazed in'.

Here is a photo of 'the other end'.

Warehouse slotted in well glencairn. Your right about the station starting to feel crammed in. The industrial area in its entirety is looking great!

Thanks again for your comments, Josh. I cannot see me adding any more buildings to it.

Is it finished? Heck no!! There are cobbles to lay. Then I have to have some 'Barnbow Lasses' at the station. When I lived in Leeds (near the Barnbow Factory) were were always being reminded of 'The Lasses' who worked there.
