Place Replaced By Plaza

I took this photograph 35 or more years ago. At the time, Akroyd Place ended in the car park that was such a central feature of the Halifax of my youth. Next to it was the building that had been the Halifax Bowl, but by the time I took this photo it had been converted into a supermarket. The Town Hall imposed its presence on this part of the town and the sun still reflected off the stone sets. The stone sets of Akroyd Place are still there, but the road now provides little more than a view of the back wall of Broad Street Plaza.
