The Oldest Shop in Briggate
Undated. The oldest shop in Briggate built by Richard Sykes (one time mayor of Leeds) as a place of residence in 1615. The date on the original etching is 1513. It should be 1613 according to Percy Robinson. The photograph is taken from an etching in which the date 1513 has been altered to 1613 by a later hand. Belonged to Charles Crabtree, Hosier, 1861 - 1887. Later to Timpson's boot dealers and was demolished in 1955 for extensions to Timpsons.
