Lewis's Contruction site looking west towards the Town Hall (City Centre)
Black & White image27th August 1931. View of Lewis's constuction site looking west towards the Town Hall. This shows the huge depth of the site after excavations were completed. Several workmen are visible, one breaking up rock with a pick axe. In the background, left, the Headrow is a hive of activity with people undergoing their daily business with the road actually in the process of being widened. A team of workers, in shirt sleeves and flat caps, are employed in construction work and the site is cordoned off from vehicles and pedestrians. It is possible to see just how narrow the Headrow (Lowerhead Row) was previously from this photograph. It was widened to 80 feet on the north side and involved the demolition of many properties. Sir Reginald Theadore Blomfield, a London Architect was responsible for the new frontage to the Headrow and the work commenced in 1927. In the centre background the dome and clocktower of the Town Hall are visible. In front of it is the 1930 Lloyd's Bank building which was built in accordace with Sir Reginald Blomfield's plans to designs by architects Kitson, Parish, Ledgard and Pyman. The Portland stone building is nowadays part of the Light complex and houses the 147 bedroom Radisson SAS Hotel. Woodhouse Lane runs across the centre of mid ground and, to the right centre is the decorative gable of the City Hotel between the junctions of Wormald Row, and De Grey Street with Woodhouse Lane. Harrison's Almshouses are at the right edge.
