Victoria Hall Tower

This is the imposing tower of the Victoria Hall, Saltaire - originally the Saltaire Club and Institute (see also 8 July), built in Italianate style and opened in 1871. Again, the signature decorative motif of two arches and a roundel is used in the windows of the tower. The windows of the Hall itself bear more resemblance to the windows of most of the earlier houses in the village (see for example 28 June), though the Hall also has the wonderful carved faces (see 25 July) on each surround.
