Albion Street, from Albion Place (City Centre)
Black & White imagec1927. View shows no.55-63 Albion Street, seen from the junction with Albion Place. On the left edge is part of the Yorkshire Post Newspapers building at no.55, while on the far right no.63 is occupied by F.W. Bentley & Co., stockbrokers, Leeds & District Property Owners & Ratepayers Association and W.H. Coverdale, solicitor. The main focus of the picture however is the building in the centre comprising nos.57-61, the property of Ford & Warren, solicitors, also occupied by the Leeds Stock Exchange. This three storey Georgian building had previously been a branch of the Bank of England, then the Bank of Leeds before they went into liquidation in 1878. It then briefly passed to the National Provinicial Bank before being bought by Ford & Warren's then partners J.R. Ford and Wm. Warren. The firm which would become Ford & Warren had previously occupied various premises on Albion Street under different names. Sometime after this photo the ground floor was formed into separate shops leaving Ford & Warren and the Stock Exchange on the upper floors, sharing an entrance from Albion Street via no.61. Following a compulsory purchase order in 1968 the area was redeveloped including the building of West Riding House on this site. Ford & Warren continued in business, operating from Westgate Point, until 2015 when they were taken over by Weightmans.
