Albion Street and the new Headrow, showing the Leeds and Holbeck Building Society's Headquarters (City Centre)
Black & White image1930. Photograph showing the junction of Albion Street to the left and the newly created Headrow to the right. Prior to road widening this section of The Headrow had been known as Guildford Street. New plans for the road alterations were put forward in 1924, which meant that the former premises, on the opposite corner at number 96 Albion Street, had to be demolished. The Leeds and Holbeck Building Society acquired this site for £42,500 and it was previously occupied by very old 'one decker' shops. The new headquarters opened on 12th March 1930.

Albion Street at the junction with Guildford Street (City Centre)
Black & White image1930, Photograph showing the junction of Albion Street to the left and Guildford Street. Guildford Street was later to be renamed as The Headrow after road widening took place in the 1930s. The former premises of the Leeds and Holbeck Building Society can be seen in the background, although it was shortly to be cleared. In 1924 plans were being made to widen the Headrow and the demolition of this building was inevitable. The Leeds and Holbeck bought old property on the south-west corner of Albion Street and built a new Headquarters there in 1930.
