Top: A family are posing by the fountain, this is the junction of the High Street (not in view on the left) and Victoria Avenue.
The wall on the left is the perimeter of Moorfield Mill, Yeadon Waterworks is the building with the chimney on the right.

Upper Middle: View of the Fountain which was situated on Victoria Avenue (Harrogate Road).
The Fountain and trees seen here were to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897.

Lower Middle: Victoria Avenue is in the foreground, beyond the fountain the road continues as Harrogate Road.
The large house to the right is Heather Field, the road to the right is the High Street. Two men sit on the bench which is against the wall of William Murgatroyd's Moorfield Mill.

Bottom: Two boys leaning on the fountain on Victoria Avenue, the boy on the right was J E Chadwick.
