Image shows Aire Street, left, and Wellington Street in the background, right, with tramlines and seen from what is now City Square. In the centre the triangular building is occupied by numbers 56 to 62 Aire Street, also numbered as 11 to 15A Wellington Street. Large, white painted lettering on the corner of the building announces that 'These Commanding Premises to Let.' Other signage on the frontage reads 'Prize Competition Dept. Over a Million Prizes' and 'Save your wrappers'. In 1910 the Gents Hairdressing business of Walter Barstow moved into the corner premises (number 11). It remained here as a family business until 1980 when the buildings were demolished to build City Square House. At the left edge, at number 9 Wellington Street, is Leeds Film Supply Company. At the right edge the buildings stand on the future site of the Majestic Cinema and Ballroom which did not open until June, 1922.
