1898. Architect: Joseph Goddard. Ebullient Classicism.
During the late nineteenth century, the buildings of the centre of Leicester were uniformly replaced by new Victorian edifices, which, into the late 1960s, provided the principal character of the city centre. When walking along Galllowtree Gate and Granby Street in particular, it is enlightening to look above the ground floor of buildings. Moreove, some entire buildings retain their whole late-19th-century and early-20th-century character.
