This photo is of the then New Provincial Building Society which was built in the 1970's. At the time this was one of the most handsome buildings in Bradford. To the right of the photo is the Mechanics Institute, in the foreground is is Town Hall Square traffic island with it's old toilet's, this was to go in the new developments of Bradford. Work had already begun on the new toilet development in City Hall, and this will become a civic open space which will have an illuminated fountain.
