This collection of archive photos shows more than 40 years of shopping history at Bradford’s Kirkgate Shopping Centre.

The original Kirkgate Market was built in 1872, and sadly demolished in 1973, to make way for a new era.

However, for many Bradfordians, shopping in Kirkgate Shopping Centre will still hold fond memories, from a first dates, family outings or as the place where they started their working careers.
