Long Description:
During the industrial revolution Bradford became a major textile manufacturer and was known as the 'Wool capital of the world'.

There are many surviving warehouses in the nearby better known area of Little Germany where a large number of German merchants spent large sums of money constructing imposing warehouses for the storage and sale of their goods.

This warehouse is situated near to the main shopping centre of Bradford. Part of the ground floor has now been converted to retail units although the corner one currently houses a recruitment agency. The rest of the building is now made up of offices.

The building is on the corner of Duke Street and Piccadilly. The date stone not only has the date, but the name of Picaddily where the main entrance is.
Year of construction: 1833
