Roundhay Park, Centre Walk

31st May 1934. View of Roundhay Park lookng down along Centre Walk, also known as Middle Walk, from the path leading up to the Mansion. Statues of a woman and a man stand on top of posts at either side of a flight of steps leading down to the circular fountain. The tree-lined Centre Walk continues beyond this into the distance where it leads to Waterloo Lake.
