Traffic Duty Dewsbury Road 1960 - a Memory of Leeds.

In 1960 I was a very young Police Constable at Dewsury Road Police Station. One of my duties was traffic duty at the bottom of Dewsbury Road. I think it was at the junction with Great Wilson Street and Meadow Road (not sure), by the toilets. Would like to see a map of that junction to remind me of how it was.
We wore a long white coat, white sleeves and white gloves. Later when smog was a problem they fitted large heat lamps to dissipate the smog.
