Street furniture

Bradford Walking Tour 6
This sculpture, standing on Chapel Street in Little Germany, is called: 'Grandad's Clock and Chair' according to the Bradford Sculpture Trail leaflet but 'Victorian Presence' on the artist's own site. It was created in 1992 by Tim Shutter. The grouping of armchair, clock and mirror acts as a reminder of the generation who built Little Germany. Perhaps it is meant to be a mill owner's office or house? Whatever, it is a quirky piece and fun suddenly to stumble across it on a walk.


  1. Unusual! The chair looks deceptively comfortable, though of course it can't be.

  2. I love the chair and its green upholstery!
