Albion Street, gale damaged Church of the Nazarene (Morley) (3 comments)
Colour image27th June 1984 View along Albion Street looking in the direction of Queen Street. On the right is the Church of the Nazarene. It is screened off and about to be demolished after it was virtually destroyed in gale force winds on the evening of 2nd January 1984. The site was retained by the church authorities and a new church built. Straight ahead Morrison's supermarket and the car park are visible. The section of Albion Street between Corporation Street and Queen Street was blocked off for the building of Morrison's and the Windsor Court shopping precinct in 1972 and the area was cleared except for the Church of the Nazarene. It became surrounded by car parking. The onion shaped dome in the background belongs to the former Morley Industrial Co-operative Society building later to become Barclays Bank. It is situated at the junction of Albion Street with Queen Street.

Albion Street, Morley Industrial Co-operative Society Ltd. Building (Morley)
Black & White image1921. View of Morley Industrial Co-operative Society Ltd. Building early in 1921. The society started with a butcher's shop on Albert Road in 1866 and then built new central premises on Albion Street in 1869. This was the section on the extreme right hand side. The shops started opposite the Baptist Chapel at the junction with Albion Street and Commercial Street, with a beehive over the doorway of the first shop. Other shops extended down Albion street and the warehousing facilities went along Commercial Street. The junction between the 1869 buildings and the later 1899 buildings, which this image mainly shows, is at the notice for 'cafe' on Albion Street. These 1899 buildings were erected by James Clegg, joiner and builder of Wesley Street. He won a special medal for designing the three curved windows with decorative turret at the junction between Albion Street and Queen Street. Most of this new building was taken up by the house furnishing department, especially the second and third floors. Along the front in Queen Street were boots and shoes and electrical goods.
