Marks & Spencer (Kirkgate Market)

Marks & Spencer, 1904 Hall, Kirkgate Market, 28-34 George Street, Leeds LS2, 2014 • Blimey – the first-ever M&S, opened 1884. And it’s still there! Actually, it isn’t – this is a heritage re-imagining, which opened near the site of the original in 2013.

    • Naively, I assumed it was the original stall ­ now I see that was just a table! So yes, I guess this is new. There¹s an ³old² M&S stall in Newcastle¹s covered market, too.
