I only travel to Elland Road & Headingley these days so I can't pinpoint significant changes apart from the road network which has improved significantly.
I assume Leeds City Centre is great place to shop, drink & eat.
My first job in retail was at Barkers in The Headrow before moving next door to work in the now defunct department store Schofields, a store which was known as the pinnacle of Leeds shopping centre.
I use to do many concerts at the Uni & Poly back then in the early 70's. Headingley still seems to be a buzzing place when I was there last year
John Lewis was the store to be visited in the 50s/60s - can't speak for any other era. Getting a tram from Wakefield to Leeds centre used to involve changing trams at Stourton (or somewhere on the souther outskirts).

The one thing Leeds was crying out for was a tram network like a lot of cities have these days. The council had plans and a quote of £300 million back in the early 90s and some preliminary work was started along Hunslet Rd only for the backward thinking Leeds City Council to pull the plug. This would have really help solve Leeds commuters daily nightmare. Experts say to resurrect the plans would now be costing £billions so we'll be having to make do without
