Leeds Kirkgate Market has welcomed generations of shoppers down the decades. It became the largest indoor market in Europe when it opened​ in 1857 and through the years has had a tough life with scars to prove it. These photos turn back the focus on life in the market during the 1980s, a time when it was on the rise after a devastating fire in December 1975. Do you remember these stalls and traders?
