The application provides for the erection of a twelve bay single storey temporary timber building to be used as a sale room. The overall dimensions are 68 feet x 34feet. The temporary structure was to stand behind the former Post & Telegraph Office, designed by W.H. Crossland.
According to Roy Brook, 'The Tramways of Huddersfield',(Huddersfield, 1959) p14, '...a large wooden shed on the site now occupied by the Wholesale Market, was purchased for use as a Tram Depot, the building having previously been used as a circus.' It is probably this shed which was purchased rather than the circus building which was on the site currently occupied by the POst Office sorting office and yard. The circus site was to become Rowley's Empire.
