Continental Coffee House/Godwin Street

An enquiry was received recently in Bradford Local Studies library for photographs of the Continental Café on Godwin Street from the 60’s and 70’s. The downstairs area of the café was known as the ‘Hole in the Wall’ coffee bar.

These images show the lower part of Godwin Street and the Continental Café can be identified on the right by the distinctive ‘Coca Cola’ sign.

In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s the cafe was frequented by Mods of the day who would park their scooters the full length of Godwin Street. Thanks to our enquirer for this detail and the trip down memory lane.
