Alhambra Theatre

          This Grade II listed building is a Bradford landmark, it was almost demolished and made into a car park in the 1980s.  It was rescued and fully refurbished in 1986, a glass facade and main entrance being added to the front of the building, the original entrance was on the corner beneath the dome.  I was once told that the building was painted black during the second world war, but I can't find anything to confirm this, so it may or may not be true.

  1. If anyone knocked down a treasure like this, they should be sent straight to jail. It looks great. The glass wall at the right fits the building nicely, I think. Glad it has been preserved.
