More Leicester oddments

Very literal old sign
The Leicestershire Butchers Hide Skin & Fat Company building on Queen Street is now a car park. The sign still remains above the entrance. The company appears to have been formed in 1867 and transferred business operations to Somerset and is now dissolved. Info from empedia
Leicester going continental

I imagine this is a self-confident Victorian building

One of the ground floor windows
Some info on Faire Brothers and CO.  It seems they still manufacture paper.
The magnificent entrance to what is now residential flats

Leicester covered market - always worth a visit

Autumn colours hanging in there

Verdigris on the turret

Modern reflections
