They don't make them like that anymore...
It's always worth 'looking up' in cities, and that's very true in Bradford. The building on the right is the Wool Exchange (see yesterday's post) at its wider end, with an equally ornate building on the left that is now a bank (maybe always has been?)
The photos below show a couple of interesting sights within the Wool Exchange: a statue of Richard Cobden (1804-1865) - a self-made businessman who became an MP and an outspoken, radical campaigner for free and fair trade, international co-operation and democracy - and some original Victorian tiles and wrought ironwork on the staircase.
