Bull and Mouth Hotel, number 138 Briggate
Undated. The Bull and Mouth was at first a centre for heavy baggage wagons. The archway to Bull and Mouth Yard was originally much wider to accommodate the huge wagons. It became a coaching inn in 1800 and the Loyal Duncan was the first coach to run from here. It soon became one of the busiest coaching inns in Leeds, and had standing room for thirty horses in the cellar stables. The 'True Briton' left from here every morning at 10 o'clock for Manchester, where it arrived at 6.30 in the evening. In 1903 it became the Grand Central Hotel, and in 1921 the name was changed again to the Victory Hotel. It closed in 1939. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.
