Leeds, Leeds Art Library, Leeds City Library, staircase
There can’t be many cities where you’d go to the library to admire the staircase…

Towns of Two Halves extracts:
“The Billy Bremner statue depicts the combative midfielder with arms aloft, acclaiming the crowd. Originally in bronze, the kit has subsequently been painted white. This ill-advised ‘improvement’ makes it look as though Bremner blacked-up for the artist.”
“The Headrow [is] an odd name for a main street, suggestive of an exotic hairstyle probably involving beads.”
“There can’t be many cities in the UK where you’d go to the library just to admire the staircase.”
