Gasholder, Bradford
Gasholder, Bradford
One of two giant gasholders built for the Bradford Gasworks in the second half of the nineteenth century. Up until the late 1960s, the gasworks together with Bradford Colliery and Bradford Ironworks (Richard Johnson and Nephew) dominated a heavily industrialised landscape which has now almost completely disappeared; giving way to a hypermarket and Sportscity (Velodrome, football stadium etc) with all their associated car parks.
