Leeds.
The photographers amongst you might be interested to know that West Yorkshire Cameras: The Proper Camera Shop is situated in the Leeds Corn Exchange [it is just to the right of the tip of the Christmas Tree, in fact].

A certain on-line encyclopaedia informs me that the Leeds Corn Exchange opened in 1863 and was designed by Hull born architect Cuthbert Brodrick. As well as designing Leeds Town Hall, The Mechanics Institute (now the Leeds City Museum) and the Grand Hotel in Scarborough, the Hull Daily Mail informs me that Brodrick also designed Wellington House in Hull, which I photographed back in 2013 [https://anticsroadshowblogspot.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/photo-archive-wellington-house-hull-c-2013/]; it has since been demolished.
