Recently I visited the Cultural Quarter in Leicester. Even though I grew up near this city and visited often, this is an area with which I’m not that familiar. The things I do remember are the Moderne former Odeon cinema and the ‘flat-iron’ corner of The Exchange Building, with its original shop fronts.
… as are the grills over the windows.
Next door is a collection of three buildings, which have over time housed a framework knitters’ workshop and warehouse, a leather workshop, an engravers’ and a modern hosiery factory. It has been refurbished recently, and is now known as Makers’ Yard. I shall be writing about this in my next post.
