Municipal Buildings at the junction of the Headrow with Calverley Street.
Undated. View of the Municipal Buildings seen from the Headrow (foreground), at the junction with Calverley Street, left. It was designed by George Corson in the Renaissance style and built between 1876 and 1884. Between 1934 and 1965 the City Police Headquarters was based here on the 1st floor, sharing the building with the Central Library. The police moved to Westgate in 1965 and Leeds City Museum began to move into the vacated space in 1966. The former museum accommodation in Park Row was structurally unsound after bomb damage in 1941 and was also by this time considered to be too small. The new Museum was officially opened by H.R.H. Princess Margaret on 6th November 1969.
