Very interesting building. I was taking as many pictures as I was looking at books. This is the old Wool Exchange and the woodwork and windows are awesome. The books are logically arranged and reasonable.

This is now a bookshop but was once a wool trading hall. I went in the 1980s when wool was actively traded on the floor. One of Bradford's iconic buildings.
