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. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
