Economic Stores Bakery , Halifax


End Show

During 1920 the Economic Stores acquired the former Central works site which it developed over two decades into a motor garage facility for the company's vehicles, together with a large model bakery. The company was very successful until the 1960s, but declined thereafter, closing in the mid 1970s. Harold Marshall, engineers, established in 1974, next occupied the premises until the 1990s. A branch of Burger King has since been erected on the site. View of the bakery, October 1988.
