A set of Postcards collected by Keith Rowntree mainly date from the early years of the Leeds Training College. Some describe the buildings as new. Two refer to the buildings as the Military Hospital which would date them to between 1914-18 although the hospital had a presence on site until 1927. Publishers of the postcards include local Leeds firms of H. Burniston, Pickard and Sons and Holland & Co..
