Bradford Central Library
This is Bradford Central Library, officially opened by Princess Alexandria (cousin of the Queen) in 1967 and at the time was the largest library in England (in terms of number of books). The building has a distinct 1960's look to it and is starting to show its age, it hasn't changed much since I borrowed my first book there in , I think, 1970. My school was about ten minutes walk from the library and I spent probably three or four lunchtimes each week just browsing and sometimes borrowing books, books on anything really, astronomy, tape recorders, repairing motorcycle engines, microphones, or my favourite subject, Science Fiction.
