Briggate, showing the Empire Palace Theatre, tinted postcardUndated. Tinted postcard view of Briggate looking in the direction of the Headrow or Upperhead Row and Lowerhead Row as it was known then. At the right side is the frontage of the Empire Palace Theatre which opened in Briggate on 29th August 1898 as a music hall. It was built to designs by London architect Frank Matcham. The theatre had a lead, flat roof, part of which was mounted on rails. This section could be moved back in good weather to provide a large ventilation opening, probably to remove build up of smoke from the smokers in the audience. The cast iron and glass canopy over the entrance was demolished c1949-50 as a safety measure. The Empire Theatre closed in 1961 and was demolished in 1962. The site became the Empire Arcade before the present store, Harvey Nichols was opened. In the centre the junction with Queen Victoria Street is visible.
