The Arcades

The arcades of Leeds have fascinated and delighted me ever since I moved here in 1987. Not surprising as I had spent so much time studying Walter Benjamin’s mammoth unfinished “Arcades Project”. This is the core of my own “arcades project”, looking at the arcades, the stores in those arcades, including

– the Victoria Quarter
– County Arcade
– Cross Arcade
– Queens Arcade
– Thorton’s Arcade
– Grand Arcade
– Burton Arcade
– Market Street Arcade

To this I will be adding those shopping malls that form part of the network of covered shopping areas that criss-cross Leeds city centre, including

– the Merrion Centre
– the St. John’s Centre
– the Headrow Centre (previously known as the Schofield Centre) and
– the plaza behind the Burton Arcade
