It was the year 1936 when Huddersfield’s Co-operative was built and May 1937 when it officially opened its doors.

Its chief architect was W.A. Johnson and it was revolutionary in its design for a commercial building of the time.

Nice deco staircase, pity there wasn't more left really. I've looked at this a while ago so good to see the innards!

They've ragged that external staircase at the back out now. So no more death slides for would be trespassers!

Just to add, this building was an extension to the existing Co-Op next door, 1890s I believe. The town had an Industrial Co Op before the 30s!

The town's first truly modern building, and probably the town's worst ever nightclub.
