Sgwarnog: In the Field

By sgwarnog

Penny Bank

The former Yorkshire Penny Bank at the junction of Manor Row and North Parade; one of the finest buildings in the city. 

It was erected in 1895 under the direction of architect James Ledingham.  As John Ayres' Architecture in Bradford  has it: "The splendid clock turret with the neighbouring frenzy of applied decoration at eaves level has a distinct eastern European flavour. "

One can almost ignore the contemporary jungle of street furniture. Almost.
