This Raphael Tuck photograph was first issued in 1904, meaning it shows a busy Briggate at the turn of the 20th Century.
This view looks north in Briggate towards the Headrow, with hotels flanking either side of the road, and seemingly plenty of space for pavements, road traffic and trams. There also appears to be a railway station on the right belonging to the Great Northern (?) Railway.
The Grand Central Hotel is roughly where House of Fraser is today, while 'Hyam & Co' on the left is roughly where M&S is now.
