Calverley Street, Municipal Buildings, owls (City Centre)
Black & White imagec1976-81. View shows the cast-iron railings outside the Municipal Buildings on Calverley Street, where two owl sculptures can be seen perched on top of the posts. These are part of a series of ten, arranged in pairs, and are just two of many owls to be found in different guises across the city. Their significance as a symbol of Leeds stems from the city's coat-of-arms, which was in turn inspired by the coat-of-arms of Sir John Savile, the first mayor, which also featured owls. Their contribution to Leeds' heritage has recently been celebrated by the introduction of the 'Leeds Owl Trail' which aims to educate and inspire people about the city's rich history.
