Albion Street and the new Headrow, showing the Leeds and Holbeck Building Society
1930. Photograph showing the junction of Albion Street to the left and the newly created Headrow to the right. Prior to road widening this section of The Headrow had been known as Guildford Street. New plans for the road alterations were put forward in 1924, which meant that the former premises, on the opposite corner at number 96 Albion Street, had to be demolished. The Leeds and Holbeck Building Society acquired this site for £42,500 and it was previously occupied by very old 'one decker' shops. The new headquarters opened on 12th March 1930.
