2.
1851-53 designed by Lockwood and Mawson and the partnership's first major public
commission. A large hall for concerts and meetings, built in a late classical
temple style based on the Birmingham Guildhall but, typically for its date, rather
ponderously detailed. Ashlar sandstone from quarries near Leeds as the Bradford
quarries were not then in full production. The ground floor, treated as a high
podium, is rusticated and vermiculated with panelled impost string and large
garlanded fluted consoles rising above flanking mezzanine window, to support deep
modillion bracket entablature. Pedimented pentastyle engaged portico of the
Composite order with quoin pilasters forming the entrance front above the podium
and the 9 bay wide elevation given the same giant engaged order. Similar return to
Drake Street with flat entablature. Very important corner site.
