Classicism and Iron Jelloids in Leicester






I have become rather fond of this funny little building on the London Road in Leicester that used to house a cafe.

How can you resist the slightly fantastical classical detailing and the remains of an advertisement for Iron Jelloids on the side wall?

That building looks as if it housed some type of utility service. Electricity, maybe. Tram system power supply, perhaps? Or a small brewery?

Something else to investigate. There is a book about the London Road that may tell us.
