Cowl


I have said before that it's the small details of Saltaire that really please me most, and here is one of those details - a cowl on top of the school building. There are several of these and I'm not sure if they're original, though they look similar in shape to those featured on early engravings I've seen. They appear to be made of lead? - it's a wonder they've survived! But aren't they attractive? Form, as well as function.
