Stock Exchange, Albion Street, Albion Place


Stock Exchange, Albion Street, Albion Place
Description:
Undated Engraving of the headquarters of the Stock Exchange in Leeds built in 1846/7 at the junction of Albion Street and Albion Place. It was used as a Stock Exchange until 1866. Later Denby & Co used the building as in this view as a wholesale business. Denby later went into partnership with Albert Spink and they acquired the old Music Hall premises on Albion Street in 1876 when the company became known as Denby & Spink. The building in this view was demolished in 1905 and the site became a new building for the YMCA. This was officially opened on 8th February 1908.

Comment:
Even though this beautiful looking building was built twenty six years into the 'Victorian Era' it had retained a Regency/Georgian look - - - hence its wonderful lines and style. There's even a profound Italianate influence. The architects of yesteryear certainly had style and flare, and their buildings, and and other structures, always seemed to fit quite happily into their surroundings. It's a great shame that this and many others similarly attractive buildings have been lost. Their presence today would certainly do a much better job in brightening up the streets of Leeds town centre than do the dull concrete and glass facades that try to pass themselves off as architecture today.
