Wool Exchange - Bradford

     This is the Wool Exchange on Market Street in the centre of Bradford.  The building was completed in 1867 to a design by local architects Lockwood & Mawson, the foundation stone was laid by the Prime Minister of the day Lord Palmerston.  The building was used up until the 1960s by Bradford wool traders but is currently occupied by a Waterstones book shop on the ground floor, and by a number of smaller businesses in the rest of the building.
