A to Z Challenge – travels round Leicester with my camera No 20.
One picture today and one small but perfectly formed Art Nouveau building. The Turkey Café in Granby Street.
The Turkey Café was designed by Arthur Wakerley in 1900-1. The Moorish Style facade is faced with Carrara ware made by Doulton Co.
Wakerley was a prominent Leicester architect chiefly remembered for developing the North Evington district of the city. He was also a businessman and politician, becoming Mayor of Leicester in 1898.
