I had the pleasure of meeting William Hudson, a Councillor I respected, when I worked in the Policy Unit of Leeds City Council. He was Lord Mayor of Leeds in 1977/8.

I worked for Aireborough UDC at Micklefield House in 1969. I got a member of staff pregnant so had to leave for a higher paying job. I joined the police which had double the pay and a free house.. I was a good plan for 6 years until I regrouped and went for my eventual career. 'Needs must'.

Dear Tom,
It used to be north area HQ for Leeds Library Services. When I went back to work in libraries I had an interview there and used to go on a mobile library from there starting 1978. I think it was around 1993 when library services were reorganised and vacated the building. I think it was used as offices after that. Kind Regards, Christine Lovedale, AHS.

Hi
I believe the building in the attached photo was the local Education Office until AUDC was merged into Leeds City Council. Up to this time education in the West Riding outside the large city areas was the responsibility of the WRCC (West Riding County Council) based in Wakefield. Barcroft House was the local office. I seem to remember the local education officers name was Ducker in 1950-60's. This is what I remember but it is a long time ago and needs confirmation. Philip Archdale AHS
