Generations united in quiet contemplation, as the heart of the city - usually bustling with shoppers - came to a standstill for an emotional Remembrance Sunday service and parade.
A procession featuring serving and former service men and women left Leeds Civic Hall and finished at the city centre war memorial at Victoria Gardens, where a number of wreaths were laid.
Politicians and dignitaries stood side by side families for prayers, reflection, poignant brass band music and the traditional bugle call.
The service was led by the Right Reverend Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds (CofE), and was broadcast on two big screens around the war memorial to allow members of the public not at the front to watch the proceedings.
The final parade of military personnel past and present, as well as army and sea cadets and standard bearers, provided a rousing finale as the crown applauded every single participant.
