click here for larger image

This photo was taken in the early 1970's of Market Street Bradford. The shop on the corner is Lilley and Skinner's, the building on the other cornerst that time would have been the Golden Egg Cafe, then it became a Wimpy Bar in the 1980's, then in the 1990's it became a sports shop, nothing exists there now its under development. Just further on in the photo you can see the old Midland Bank.


  1. Next to Lilley and Skinners shoe shop would have been Roz n John unisex hairstylists, then Halfords cycle shop, then Vallances TV and electrical goods shop.

  2. Wow, shops AND people in Bradford city centre!! :)
