Headrow, Guildford Hotel
Undated. The Guildford Hotel was built in 1900 and was originally situated at number 6 Guildford Street, hence the name. Guildford Street became part of The Headrow after road widening took place in the 1930s. The pub later became known as Oxygen and was noted as the first non-smoking bar in Leeds city centre, before the tobacco ban came into place. It is now (2013) the Northern Monkey. On the left edge is the entrance to Green Dragon Yard. On 15th March 1974 it hosted a reception and coffee evening for attendees of the UK’s first national conference on trans issues, ‘Transvestism and Transsexualism in Modern Society’. Delegates and guests socialised at the hotel from 7.30 to 10.30 p.m. in a safe and friendly atmosphere, while some were also interviewed by the Yorkshire Post. The conference itself was held at the University of Leeds over the following two days, and included lectures, workshops, films and a disco, largely aimed at an audience of trans women.
