You can read about St. James at http://www.rootschat.com/links/01fm5/
 In 1930 the Leeds City Council Public Assistance Committee took over both the hospital and the poor law institutions from the Board of Guardians, but the hospital was transferred to the Health Committee in 1934.

Enter 123 Becket Street into your search engine. (The workhouse)
The above is one possibility.

The former workhouse later became part of St James' Hospital. See  http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Leeds/
