Outside the station is a row of horse drawn cabs waiting to convey passengers to Yeadon or Greengates. 
Behind the station is the spire of Woodhouse Grove School Wesleyan Chapel can be seen. 
On the right is the entrance to the drive leading to Esholt Hall which is about one and a half miles away.

New information from Martin Bairstow who is a well known author of several railway books

A309 shows the station after completion of the quadrupling in 1901.

Your date of 1905 may well be correct.

The main building is the same as in A307 but there is now a covered way leading to the additional platforms on the "fast" lines.
