ANOTHER example of Keighley ‘art deco’ architecture were the gently-curving bus station offices, seen here slightly left of centre in this aerial view from the multi-storey car park before modernisation.

Opened in 1940, these originally housed a waiting room and staff facilities, including a room wherein conductors could “make-up their tickets and cash in”.

Towards the left foreground, the public conveniences from this angle appear to take-up an inordinate amount of space, leaving buses a narrow exit.

The provision of toilets used to seem more important than nowadays. In 1960 the borough of Keighley had 30 public conveniences – 22 for men and eight for women!
