Roundhay Road no. 492, Fish Bar
Description:
2003 Number 492 Roundhay Road, Oakwood Fish Bar. This is one of a row of shops which were built in the late 1800s. In the 1930s it was renovated in what was then very modern style. Materials used were vitrolite, bakelite and neon, it is now a Grade II listed building and regarded as a fine example of Art Deco style.

I wonder if there are any other businesses in the Leeds area that have retained their pre-war 'Vitrolite' or 'Bakelite' facades?
