This 1928 aerial view shows the back of the Carlton with Manchester Road on the far side of the building. It was in a relatively densely populated area of terraced housing. How clean and bright the stone still looks (it’s been up 6 years). When I saw it (outside only) in the 1950s it was soot-black like most of Bradford.
The elements of the building show clearly. A full height stage extension on the left with single storey elements for toilets and exits. The foyer/stairs/projection-room structure at the right; with the auditorium in between.
