Before big money ad campaigns with Twiggy and Gary Barlow, Marks & Spencer was a tiny stall in Kirkgate Market. The Penny Bazaar of 1884 has recently been reinstated there (alas, charging a bit more than that now) and The Company Archive museum across town is a treasure trove of nostalgic clothes, homeware and food tins. Look out also for free events which usually include a talk about the collection and swing dancing lessons.
