Masonic decay


Bradford is definitely one of those cities where 'looking up' beyond the contemporary or tatty shopfronts is worthwhile.  This building on John Street was originally known as Unity Hall, and was leased by Bradford's German community. The stone head is the German poet, Friedrich Von Schiller.  Later it became a Masonic Hall and later still was used by The Oddfellows.  It is now empty and sadly decaying.
