The Turkey Cafe, 24 Granby Street, Leicester LE1, 2016 • Tiled turkey on 1901 art nouveau fantasia by important Leicester architect Arthur Wakerley (who, as we shall see, was a man of many styles). Until the 1960s it remained a cafe and popular women’s meeting place; since then it’s had various uses and renovations, and by 2016 was a cafe-bar called 1901 – The Turkey Cafe. Ironic, seeing as its original purpose was to promote temperance.
Thought you’d find this one , for me probably the best shop frontage in Britain, its an absolute jewel , nice to see your work of my home city , i reposted kingstone onto Facebook and turns out an old work colleague worked there in 1968, brought back happy memories for him Keep up the good work >
Glad you like it, I have family connections in the area so knew Leicester was an interesting place!
