Albion Place, looking towards Briggate and King Edward Street

Albion Place, looking towards Briggate and King Edward Street
18th March 1975. View shows a busy Albion Place looking east across Briggate towards King Edward Street. On the left are Hornes and Dunn & Co., both menswear shops. On the right is Bailey's, another menswear shop, then a vacant shop previously occupied by Marcus Price, also menswear. This is followed by Cyril Livingstone, ladieswear, P. Jones, china and glass, the Brook Street Bureau employment agency and Dolcis footwear. The elaborate towers of the listed buildings at either side of the entrance to King Edward Street are seen in the centre, while Kirkgate Market is further along on the right-hand side. Quarry Hill Flats, in the process of demolition, can just be glimpsed in the distance.
