Central Market, Duncan Street
Undated. An engraving showing the Central Market in Duncan Street looking towards Holy Trinity Church in Boar Lane. This covered market was privately financed via £50,000 shares and built at a cost of £30,000 in response to the economic boom in Leeds in the mid-1820s. The narrow streets had become unsuitable for market trading and the Central Market was one of five markets in Leeds during this period which attempted to address the problem. It comprised of a covered central hall incorporating 56 stalls and a bazaar at balcony level. There were also 67 shops. The Central Market was badly damaged by a fire in 1893 and its demise gave the opportunity for much needed road widening schemes in Vicar Lane and Duncan Street.
