Cock and Bottle Inn, number 18 Upperhead Row (City Centre) (1 comment)
Black & White image1886. Painting depicting the 18th century Cock and Bottle Inn at number 18 Upperhead Row (now The Headrow). The picture is also to be found in Mr. Brown's album of photographs of old Leeds. In 1938 Snowden Schofield purchased the Cock and Bottle when he was acquiring the site for his expanding store which eventually became the well known Schofield's department store. The pub was not demolished, however, until 1961. The Schofield's store was redeveloped as the Schofield's Shopping Centre in 1987 and then the Headrow Shopping Centre was built on the site in 1990. Further refurbishment has taken place since and the centre is now known as The Core. (2013). It occupies the former site of the Cock and Bottle, opposite to Dortmund Square. Painting photographed by Wormald of Leeds. At the right edge, part of the premises of boot warehouse, Thurman & Co. is visible, located at number 1 Guildford Street. Two men in military uniform are seen standing at the junction with Guildford Street.
