View of the Black Horse Hotel at the junction with Kirkgate, left and Beech Hill, right. This building replaces the original Black Horse Commercial Hotel which was demolished in 1900. It was formerly called the Coach Inn and coaches left here every Tuesday, on route to York via Harewood and Tadcaster (1822). It dated back to the 18th century. The building seen here was erected in 1901 and boasts a fine mosaic floor to the entrance doorway and there is some elaborate late Victorian masonry work to the frontage. A group of people can be seen crossing Beech Hill.
