I don’t know much about the Yorkshire Building Society, I must say I have less than a passing interest in Building Societies generally.
I more of a building societies man myself.
But I do know this
In 1993 the former Hammonds Sauce Works Band was renamed as the Yorkshire Building Society Band. The building society supported the main band and also the YBS Hawley Band and YBS Juniors. The building society ceased its sponsorship in December 2004 although the YBS initials were retained in the band’s name until 2008. From January 2009 the band was renamed the Hammonds Saltaire Band.
Which seems a particularly cruel way, to treat a sauce works band.
Their former HQ has been standing on the corner, watching all the world go by.
For some time now.
For sale, to let, facing an uncertain future.

Phwoar! I took a pilGRIMage to Bradford last year to see this and the shopping centre. But the highlight as it turned out was the Richard Dunne sports centre… https://www.flickr.com/photos/placid_casual/sets/72157660132767514
