George Street, Halifax
Over the years, the street has been known as Back Lane, Lovelace, Loveledge and Loveless Lane.

The street is said to have been named after a visit by King Christian VII of Denmark on 1st September 1768.

Some writers have expressed doubt about this explanation for the origin of the name, and suggest that it was named after Sir George Savile who often stayed at Royds' House.

On 4th December 1923, a runaway motor lorry wrecked property in the street.

On 1st February 1926, Halifax ratepayers voted against widening George Street and development of Bull Green, Halifax.

On 16th December 1926, there was a Ministry of Transport inquiry into Halifax Corporation's application to borrow £22,634 to buy property in Silver Street, George Street and Black Swan Passage for the proposed widening of George Street.

Around 1935/1940, buildings in Silver Street, Black Swan Passage and George Street were demolished when George Street was widened. The newer buildings on the north side were completed in the 1950s.
