Victoria Bridge, Leeds in Yorkshire

Victoria Bridge LeedsPicture of Victoria Bridge, Leeds.

This photograph shows a view of the Victoria Bridge a handsome yellow stone bridge completed in 1839.

Named after the young Queen of England who had been monarch for 2 years when this fine bridge was opened. The name Victoria is inside a floral wreath on the keystone in the middle of the arch.

Victoria Bridge carries a road and footpaths over the river Aire adjacent to Granary Wharf and is close to Bridgewater Place, Leeds, the tallest building in Yorkshire.
