Large corner block with Kirkgate and Piece Hall Yard. Built 1878, architects:
Andrews and Pepper. Italianate details, elaborated on top floor. Ashlar faced;
4 tall storeys with rounded corners to Kirkgate and Piece Hall Yard. Six windows
to main fronts and one to each curved corner. Cornice over ground floor shop fronts

flanking strips and carved console brackets to broken entablatures, thin cornices
projecting from second floor sill course. The second floor has segmental arched
windows, similar carved console brackets, broken entablatures, and prominent solid
pediments decorated with incised ornament. The console brackets spring from a
moulded string course which in turn supports paired pilasters, cut into by pediments,
rising up to projecting bracketed eaves cornice. Incised strings carried across
pilasters at second floor pediment level and third floor sill level. These pilasters
flank and articulate the third floor windows as a pilastrade. The third floor
windows are divided into 2 lights with the transom over having central rosette.
Main frieze with roundels over pilaster caps and projecting moulded eaves cornice.
The corners have scroll supported paired, corniced, chimneys linked by sections of
balustrade. Modern shop fronts under ground floor entablature but retaining
original hotel entrances on both fronts, consisting of banded panelled pilaster
doorways with large console brackets to cornice hoods supporting pilaster casts of
a Talbot Hound. The return front to Piece Hall Yard has giant pilastrade through
second and third floors. Important corner site.
