Eastgate, looking north-east
c28th November 1966. View looking north-east along Eastgate showing the Employment Exchange on the left and part of Quarry Hill Flats on the right. Construction work is taking place in the foreground at the covering over the Lady Beck.

I worked at the employment exchange from March 1967 when this work was underway. The noise from the works was terrible, it was nearly impossible to interview people trying to make a claim to benefits. It was my first job and I loved working there; in 1970 I transferred to Bradford Employment Exchange.
