SK5904 : Warehouse, York Street, Leicester

taken 7 years ago, near to Leicester, Great Britain

Warehouse, York Street, Leicester
Warehouse, York Street, Leicester
An impressive one too, one of the best to have survived. Thirteen bays divided by giant piers meeting at the top to form an arcade. The windows are segment-headed apart from the top floor where they are round-arched. It may be the work of Arthur Wakerley, 1887-88.
The name "Briggs" is carved above the door. Was it a leather warehouse?
The car park in front charged 1 for an hour, 5 all day.
