Briggate in the summertime, watercolour painting by Pete Lapish (City Centre)
Colour imagec1910. View of Briggate in the summertime in contrast with the wintry scene depicted in ID 201039_170439, both watercolour paintings by Yorkshire artist, Pete Lapish. Boots Cash Chemists can be seen on the right, located at the junction with King Edward Street. The facade of the building is decorated with elaborate signage, some of which will be illuminated in the evenings. Awnings are raised to protect the window displays from the sunshine. This run of ornate buildings, including the Boots premises, the Leeds Empire Palace Theatre (with statue at the apex) and the twin domes either side of Queen Victoria Street, was designed by London architect, Frank Matcham for the Leeds Estate Company in the late 1890s/early 1900s. This is all nowadays part of the upmarket shopping sector, the Victoria Quarter. The view is in the direction of the Headrow, or Upperhead and Lowerhead Row as it was known then.
