Coloured Cloth Hall, Junction of Park Row and Infirmary Street
Undated, The 'coloured ' or 'mixed cloth' hall was built in 1758. Previously coloured cloth was sold in Briggate. This is an interior view of the hall showing the rows of arched windows. It was the largest building in Georgian Leeds and was designed to accomodate 1700 clothiers. With the advent of the factory production of cloth the trade gradually declined in the cloth halls. The coloured cloth hall was demolished in 1890 for the development of City Square.
