Little Germany

     This is the view from the Little Germany area of Bradford looking towards the town centre and City Hall.  Just beyond the hoardings at the bottom of the street you can see part of the infamous 'hole', the excavations and foundations of a shopping complex which was put on hold due to the recession.  Many of the textile warehouses built here in the 1860s and 1870s were owned by German merchants hence the name 'Little Germany'.
